Manson Guitar Works are proud to announce the 2016 Manson DL-1 release. Inspired by the very first Hugh Manson and Matthew Bellamy custom guitar, with its aluminium covering, Matt quickly nicknamed his first Manson custom the 'DeLorean' inspired by the famous DeLorean stainless steel car. Available with a choice of effects including Z-Vex USA Fuzz Factory and MXR Custom Script 90 Phaser circuit. This edition together with the SDL-1 variation is limited to just 25 pieces worldwide. (Now Sold Out)

Product Detail

For both Matthew Bellamy and luthier Hugh Manson, this is a trip back to the future as the 2016 edition of the DL-1 is our next celebration of the very first Manson/Bellamy creation that departed massively from virtually any guitar on the market revealing the path Manson Guitars would take in interpreting and creating the sonic visions of the then 22-year old guitarist.

The original design, based upon Matt and Hugh’s sketches and drawings, not only had a striking shape and finish (being aluminium clad) it also hinted at future models with its unique incorporation of guitar effects into the body. In its original incarnation it sported an internal Z-Vex Fuzz Factory pedal, MXR Phase 90, Roland GK synth access pickup system, piezo saddles, humbucker and P-90 pickup combination.

The 2016 Manson DL-1 model has evolved since it’s original release in 2011 retaining all the key features that make it so unique but with the latest versions of our circuits and build techniques. The 2016 DL-1 sports a solid, raw finish aluminium top over a mahogany 2-piece body, solid aluminium backplates, Seymour Duncan Hot P-90 and Manson/Bare Knuckle MBK humbucker pickup configuration with options of MXR Phase 90 and Fuzz Factory internal effects. In keeping with the policy of making every Manson/Bellamy Signature something very rare and very special, the 2016 DL-1 run will be once again be limited to just 25 pieces, crafted in the UK using the finest materials and components and come with a unique, original, signed (not printed) certificate.
