Built by Tim Stark in March 2015, this guitar, as with his duplicates for 2015 is a live duplicate for either 'Rig A' or 'Rig B'. The idea is that Matt can have a set of guitars for use in the Americas (Rig A), and another rig for use in other regions of the world (Rig B). As with the original, the guitar had to match a specific weight requirement (around 2.4kg) so multiple holes were drilled into the body, neck, hardware to reach the target weight. This guitar has no XY Midi controller and does not seem to have any additional electronics, which is a departure from Matt's Resistance-era guitars.
Unlike its twin guitar, the Manson Black 7 String, this guitar features an all black Gotoh bridge and a truss rod adjuster below the end of the neck. It also has a bitter more glitter finish than the original Black 7 String.
Like its predecessor this guitar was used first live at a gig in Cologne at the concert in the Gloria Theater
