This guitar is in terms of specification exactly the same like the Manson Matt Black Stealth 2.0 guitar. The neck features the old manson logo, as does the covered Psychopaf PF-1 Humbucker pickup.

It was handed over to Matt during May rehearsals for the EU/UK leg of the Simulation Theory Tour 2019 at AIR Studios.

A similar coloured model was gifted to Tom Morello from Matt following the end of their Simulation Theory UK Stadium Tour, coinciding with Matt becoming a part-owner of Manson Guitar Works.

The Morello Manson is a sort of cross between the Blue MB and the Manson Matt Black FR, featuring a Floyd Rose, kill switch and other goodies, but features a humbucker sustainiac and emblazoned with a decal on the body saying "Power to the People".


The guitar will presumably be used for future Simulation Theory Tour gigs allthough it has not made an appearance yet.

The guitar was on display with Manson's other guitars at the Manson guitar stand on tour with Muse during Simulation Theory Tour's UK and France legs.
