About the acquisition, the press quotes Bellamy, “I’m excited to be taking ownership of Manson Guitar Works and developing its potential in the future. Having played Manson Guitars since I was able to co-design my first custom guitar, I have the best insight into the products.”

The announcement follows Manson's recent relocation to a new production facility in Ashburton, in line with recent growth and a series of new models from the brand.

While Bellamy's personal collection of Manson guitars are known for including all sorts of high-tech gizmos like onboard synths and controllers, the company also produces a growing range of more mainstream models, as well as an affordable entry line.
