Manson Guitar Works announces new KR-1 Matt Bellamy signature model

Part of the award-winning MA series, the new model comes in a Dry Satin Black finish and is inspired by Knight Rider

Manson Guitar Works has unveiled the KR-1, a stealthy Matt Bellamy signature model from the award-winning MA series equipped with a Sustainiac Sustainer neck pickup, an ebony fingerboard and all-black hardware.

The Sustainiac is matched with a Manson PF-1 in the bridge position, offering a plethora of tonal options from single-coil brightness to acoustic-like sizzle and everything in between.

Limited to just 80 pieces worldwide, the KR-1 also includes the now customary glow in the dark Luminlay side dots and ships with an A5 certificate and Manson Exclusive black lined Hiscox hardcase. It’s also available in a K1T-1 edition, which is limited to just 20 pieces and features red anodised Manson custom hardware, a custom aluminium pickup surround and new ‘M’ engraved tuner buttons. The K1T-1 comes with a larger A4 hand-signed certificate.
