This guitar is one of 12 new Manson Guitars built for Matt Bellamy from 2015. It is very similar to the Chrome Bomber in terms of circuitry and body shape. However, it features a unique copper finish and a new Floyd Rose tremolo bridge. Also like all new Manson guitars from 2015 it features a truss rod adjuster at the end of the neck. The guitar also features custom aluminium hardware for the tone and volume controls, as well as machine head buttons.

Additional information

The Floyd Rose FRX Tremolo system is the Floyd Rose which can be attached on the Tune-O-Matic bridge routing guitar without any routing on the body. The guitar was returned to the workshop in April 2015 for work as Matt described having issues with the bridge. Tim Stark described that Floyd Rose did not have time to fully make sure that the bridge did not have any unknown issues as it was urgently needed for the build and upcomming tour. The guitar was referred as "Copper Steampunk Lozenge" by Tim Stark.


This guitar first appeared at the Belfast Ulster Hall on the opening night of the 2015 Psycho Tour.
