NAMM 2020 | Manson has created a signature guitar with Muse frontman and rock icon Matt Bellamy, and it’s more affordable than you might think.

British luthier Manson has revealed a signature guitar for the Muse frontman and recent new owner of the Manson Guitar Works company, Matt Bellamy. In conjunction with the launch of the new affordable META Series, the Manson Meta MBM-1 provides the signature touches of the Muse frontman at a very reasonable price.

The Meta MBM-1 will be produced by Cort, like the previous MBC-1, but this new guitar features Matt’s signature on the headstock, alongside the Manson logo. As part of the new META series, Bellamy is aiming to give players an affordable entry-point into this premier brand.

Whether you’re a fan of Muse or not, guitarists will appreciate the quality specification of the Manson MBM-1. Features include Manson-designed humbucker pickups, a smooth satin-finished neck, hardtail bridge, basswood body with smooth contours, maple neck, as well as a Kill Button for those signature Bellamy stutter effects.

The MB1-1 is available in Satin Black and Starlight Silver. At the time of writing, this guitar comes in at £569, which we think is incredibly reasonable for a guitar of this build quality and unique design.
