In the Classic TC you will find an instrument that has a timeless classic design, but with just the right elements of evolution. Painstakingly designed by Hugh Manson and his Manson Guitar Works team in the UK, the Classic TC elicits passion as soon as you strap it on. Below you can explore the careful steps taken to make this perfectly evolved classic.
Manson Guitar Works®
Hugh Manson has been making custom guitars for over 30 years and has earned an enviable reputation within the guitar community for innovation and quality, making electric guitars for some of the world's best known rock & roll superstars, including John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin and Matthew Bellamy from Muse. We collaborated with Hugh to create two great new instruments.
CONTROL PLATE & HARDWARE
Often overlooked, the control plate and hardware not only provide functionality but contribute significantly to the sound of the guitar as well as enhanced playing experience. The blade 3-way switch so common on guitars of this style has been replaced with a toggle switch. Even the exact travel of the switch was precisely defined by Mr. Manson to maximize playability. The bridge selected for the Classic TC has six individual saddles designed to enhance intonation and string height adjustment.
Manson® T SINGLE COIL
Hugh set a high standard for the pickups for the Classic TC. As he does on all of his instruments he designed and voiced the pickups for this specific instrument. He demanded that the pickups go beyond just being the expected classic sonic profile. At the Manson Guitar Works UK headquarters where the Classic TC was designed and came to life, the team wanted to rise to the challenge of creating a pickup set that could both cover the classic vintage tones you might expect adding a nod to modernity.
