About Us

Example Image

Manson Guitar Works is the latest facility from internationally renowned luthier Hugh Manson. For over four decades Hugh has produced world class premium quality guitars for some of the most respected guitar greats, combining traditional luthier skills with genuinely new and exciting technology developments. Manson Guitar Works allows musicians to express themselves like never before. Our MIDI controlled Matthew Bellamy signature guitars, multi stringed bass guitars for John Paul Jones and countless one-off creations for musicians who are not afraid to play outside the comfort zone (see Who Uses Manson Guitars?) have resulted in a great demand for Manson products. Previously only available as individual commissions, the Manson Guitar Works aims to bridge that difficult area between full scale production and a genuine hands-on luthier approach, offering you a unique instrument, built with attention to detail, pride and individual service.

Production of our MB-1 and DL-1 Guitars is extremely limited. All 2014 production is sold out. If future production is offered it is currently only available by requesting a place on our pre-order wait list. If further production is given the green light, customers on the pre-order list will be notified first. At this stage it is impossible to secure one of these guitars without being on the notification list so please e-mail us requesting to join the list.
