Matthew Bellamy has been seen using the Manson Laser Electric Guitar during the Absolution Era and a little bit during Black Holes Era. One example is a Muse performance at Glastonbury 2004. The guitar was also used for Sing for Absolution and several other songs, it seems that he didn't had one specific guitar for a specific tuning like today. (Stockholm isin Drop D and Sing for Absolution in standard tuning.) [Hugh Manson said](http://www.musewiki.org/Manson_Laser) that he had the idea of the lasers and lights on the guitar when he saw a plane at night on an airport. Like the Chrome Bomber, the original Bomber and the Mirror, it has a chrome/mirror finish, but it's intentionally cracked. Manson also said that the problem is that you need smoke for the lasers to be seen, that's why the guitar wasn't really used as it's full "potential".more
