This is a new guitar that first appeared on the 20th September 2012 at the Cologne gig.

This was the fourth of six Manson guitars created by Hugh Manson for Bellamy in 2012. 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 Kaoss pad controller and does not seem to have any additional electronics, which is a departure from Matt's Resistance-era guitars.

A duplicate of this guitar was built in 2015: Manson Black 7 String 2.0

Additional Information
