Just a few days after announcing the acquisition of Manson Guitar Works, Matt Bellamy has presented Tom Morello with a custom-made Manson model.

The presentation was captured in an Instagram post, in which the Muse frontman lauded the Rage Against The Machine guitarist as a formative influence. “[Tom Morello] has been a huge inspiration to me growing up, a guitar legend,” Bellamy said.
