Manson Guitar Works are proud to announce an all-new 2016 Manson Matthew Bellamy Signature Guitar, the Manson DR-1. Featuring completely fresh visuals distinct from the existing MB range and a new price point between MBC and full MB signature, the DR-1 was commissioned by Matthew Bellamy during the making of the Muse album Drones.
The new DR-1 model has many features that are new to the MB range. Body wood is swamp ash, a lightweight wood with a unique sound, that is warm, with a sweet top-end and balanced mids. The fingerboard is ebony, noted for its tight sound, dark grain and durability. The back of the neck is finished in matching military green satin lacquer and black Gotoh and Schaller hardware is employed throughout. Woodwork for the DR-1 is manufactured in Europe and final build and assembly is completed here in the UK.
The DR-1 finish is completely new and was directed by Matthew himself during the recording of the album Drones. Development included various prototype models and many months creating the correct finish and visuals to reflect the military nature of the design. Drones 01 and 02 were both reserved for Matthew and feature special distressed finishes to give an even more war decayed visual.

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!
We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.
“I have been buying guitars from World Guitars since you started trading, and this latest experience reminded me why I keep coming back. Helpful and honest advice when it’s needed (from real specialists), a great stock of top-quality instruments, being given freedom and space to test the instruments in depth, and – not least – dealing with people who are as passionate about guitars as I am! You somehow manage to make it feel like dealing with friends or family, while keeping it completely professional. Keep up the great work!
