Cort Introduces Arena 1 Matthias Jabs Signature Guitar
Cort Guitars has announced the second signature guitar from Scorpions guitarist Matthias Jabs — the Arena 1. The guitar features Scorpu pickups, which were designed by Jabs and made to his exact humbucker/single coil/humbucker specs.
The Arena 1 is the second guitar in the Matthias Jabs Signature series. The first, which came out last year, offered a single pickup and a single control setup called the Garage. The Arena 1 goes to the other extreme.
“The idea was to provide guitars to musicians of all levels ... an instrument that could grow with them from their first garage band to their latest arena tour,” Jabs says.
Features include a Full Force Switch and Easy Grip Tone Pot. The switch provides a direct-out option that lets you bypass the electronics of the guitar and send the signal directly to an amplifier or preamp. The Easy Grip Tone Pot offers a single coil push/pull option on both humbucker pickups for maximum tone flexibility.
