Inside this month's mag

This issue, we're taking a detailed look at Muse frontman, Matt Bellamy's custom Manson Guitars. With the help of Hugh Manson, we'll take you through Matt's most famous Kaoss Pad, effect and laser-loaded Mansons, as well as some brand new models, with the story behind each.

We also take a look at Matt's eclectic guitar style, and show you how you can unpick his influences to create your own riffs.
