This guitar is similar to the Manson M1D1 Stealth in terms of functionality except that it features a Humbucker Sustainiac Pickup at the neck rather than a single coil. It is the first Midi guitar built for Matt that features the Sustainiac Humbucker. Visually, it shares a similar appearance to the Manson TronCaster, with LED lights surrounding the edge of the guitar.

The guitar, hardware wise, features standard tuning pegs, custom Manson aluminium tone and volume knobs and an alloy X-Y pad frame.

A photo (see gallery) of the production of this guitar together with the Manson MB-1 Blue at Manson Guitar Works leads to the asumption, that Matt got two identical guitars delivered.


This guitar first appeared at the first night of the Simulation Theory World Tour 2019 at the Toyota Center Houston gig. It was used for Break It To Me.

The guitar is labeled by Matt's tech as "3" and "Drop B"
