Matthew Bellamy used an Ampeg Dan Armstrong in the Supermassive Black Hole video. It is a see-through guitar created by Dan Armstrong in 1969. It has custom removable pick-ups, a 3-way tone circuit and a 24-fret hard maple neck. Floria Sigismondi, the director of the video, decided to put a piece of "wallpaper" on the guitar to make it original. As far as we know, this guitar was only used for the video.

This guitar has also been used by Dave Grohl, of Foo Fighters.
