This guitar is similar to the Manson Chrome FR, except this guitar features an uncovered pickup, based on the Manson Matt Black Stealth (batch)#Manson Matt Black Stealth - #1, with both new guitars having the new Floyd Rose whammy controller system. The YES/NO switch sits in place of the tone control knob. This could be the rumoured new feature referred to in the Patented MID1 Manson.
It has been used live during Muse's latest US tour for Summer 2017.
