Manson Guitar Works are proud to announce an all-new 2016 Manson Matthew Bellamy Signature Guitar, the Manson DR-1. Featuring completely fresh visuals distinct from the existing MB range and a new price point between MBC and full MB signature, the DR-1 was commissioned by Matthew Bellamy during the making of the Muse album Drones. The first 99 pieces will be individually Drone numbered before reverting to a fixed number on future production. Shown with optional Sustainiac. *SOLD OUT!*

Product Detail

The new DR-1 model has many features that are new to the MB range. Body wood is swamp ash, a lightweight wood with a unique sound, that is warm, with a sweet top-end and balanced mids. The fingerboard is ebony, noted for its tight sound, dark grain and durability. The back of the neck is finished in matching military green satin lacquer and black Gotoh and Schaller hardware is employed throughout. Woodwork for the DR-1 is manufactured in Europe and final build and assembly is completed here in the UK.

The DR-1 finish is completely new and was directed by Matthew himself during the recording of the album Drones. Development included various prototype models and many months creating the correct finish and visuals to reflect the military nature of the design. Drones 01 and 02 were both reserved for Matthew and feature special distressed finishes to give an even more war decayed visual.
