The Alloy 7 String guitar appeared on the "Making of" DVD for The 2nd Law, recording Supremacy. In 2012, Matt wanted a 7 string Mattocaster guitar with an alloy top allthough at this point, he didn't aim for a specific weight, so the guitar was built without weight as a consideration (his later guitars used for tours, including the Manson Black 7 String, were requested to match a certain weight and thus were modified).
This was one of six Manson guitars created by Hugh Manson for Bellamy in 2012. 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.
This guitar is also the first 7 string that Matt has custom ordered from Manson Guitars (the 7 String E Guitar was originally not built for him, and the Black 7 String appears to have been built and delivered afterwards, with previously mentioned weight mods.
The guitar was never used live, likely due to it not matching any weight specs.
