This new series is the result of the application of Manne’s ideas into a traditional and classic looking instruments.
The result is a quality update with a brand new modern features of playability and performance.
Developing our Raven line we came across the idea of this new model. A dynamic look for a guitar that remains very traditional.
Manne features for optimal playability, optimal access to the full fretboard and great attention to the details.
With our neck/body joint system, the shape of the body allow more upper frets accessibility with a sleek profile.
One of the feature that sports the Manne production is the neck/body jointer, a system that allow the neck to be installed very near the body edge without the need of a heel, giving a great access and a solid connection.
We applied this system with the result of a unique upper frets access. Manne quality neck provide fast and precise playability, commonly considered one of the best necks on the markets.
