Matt can be seen playing the Manson 007 in the Time is Running Out music video. Matt refers to this guitar as "Black Ed," and it is known to the fans as "Black Manson" and "Blackie." This guitar is unique, as it is fitted with a Fernandes Sustainer, and it's the first of Matt's guitars to feature the famous MIDI pad (it's just the strip above the strings), an Zvex Fuzz Factory, still controlled by the two potentiometers under the bridge, an MXR Phase 90, but it's also the only guitar to feature a Zvex Wah Probe. (the little gold plate on the cut.) This guitar was apparently ordered by Matt around 2001 and it was retired of the stage rig since 2010/2011, but is still used extensively in studio : Matt said in an interview that it was the main guitar for the recording of The Resistance. You can also see it in the making of The 2nd Law, and some photos posted around 2014 showed the 007 during the recording of Drones. (it does not appear on the DVD though). Matt said it does not use it anymore on stage because it's a way more louder and heavy to carry that his other guitars.more
