Last week, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy teamed up with Manson Guitar Works to tease the imminent arrival of a Back to the Future-themed signature guitar. Now, the pair have finally unveiled the electric guitar they had hinted at: a limited-edition replica of Bellamy’s DL-OR guitar.

Available in a regular or Relic aluminum finish, the DL-OR is based off one of the Devon-based brand’s most iconic instruments – Bellamy’s original Origin Re-issue axe that was built by luthier Hugh Manson and electronics mastermind Ron Joyce.
