Super resonant , ultra light weight , rich clean and clear. Wonderful access to the higher registers. I spoke to Andy Manson regarding it's history and wondered why it had no internal label?
He explained that it was the first guitar he built when relocating to Portugal in 2014... And he had no labels printed at that time.He very kindly has sent me a' new label' for the guitar showing its recorded serial number of 140824. Which dates it to August 28th 2014. He also told me the guitar was originally built for Matt Bellamy of Muse.
And was to feature a chrome lacquered finish! But Andy was unhappy with this look and finished the guitar back to a more traditional wood finish. The guitar plays perfectly with a clean low action and super comfy neck.
The offset body shape is amazing. The item "2014 ANDY MANSON CUSTOM BLUEBIRD ACOUSTIC GUITAR made for MATT BELLAMY MUSE" is in sale since Monday, March 16, 2020.
