There’s some good news here and there’s some bad news. The good news is that Manson Guitar has just rolled out their new line of Oryx guitars created in collaboration with renowned metal producer (and ex-Periphery bassist) Adam “Nolly” Getgood. The bad news is that they’re not cheap.
The Oryx series is a series of six- and seven-string guitars, with the first one being the Launch Edition Oryx. The Launch Edition Oryx features an Alder body, Maple neck, Richlite fretboard, and string-through design. The guitar also comes loaded with Nolly’s Bare Knuckle Polymath pickups controlled by a Manson/Freeway-designed six-way switch, and electronics specifically designed by Nolly himself.
The Launch Edition Oryx is available through Manson Guitars in Dry Satin Black or Metallic Green Satin. The six-string version runs £2,899 (about $3,900), while the seven-string is £2,999 (about $4,000).
