Ali Top/Delorean 2.0/THE SHINY ONE.

Recommended Posts

I searched and couldn't find, forgive me if this thread already exists, it's my first time! :O

 

Anyway, I was wondering, has anyone seen Matt's Ali Top (silver, no internal effects, tremolo) guitar in use recently? He normally uses it for Knights Of Cydonia (see Wembley 07), but nowadays he just uses the Chrome Bomber, and I haven't seen it pulled out for any other songs either.

 

For those that don't know, it looks like this:

Normally used for Knights Of Cydonia, occasionally for Hysteria, Muscle Museum and Unintended. You can see it in action here:

 

But yeah, anyone know what happened to it? Has it been retired, destroyed? Just wondering.

Just retired, he only needs one guitar with a tremolo, and he probably just prefers the flashy looks of the chromey (although I think the ali top looks like one of his best guitars), but soundwise I prefer the chrome one. I don't think the ali top has been used since the U2 support shows

I'm pretty sure it was used the other night for Knights of Cydonia. I think he still uses it fairly often, its just that the chrome bomber has been used whenever its a pro shot.

My guess is that he has just decided to retire it/use it only in studio or possibly use it on occassion.

 

Considering how many current songs it's used for, surprised he uses one of those two. The tremolo arm is the only reason I can think of.

I don't think he uses the Ali Top at the moment. I've been to 3 Muse gigs in 1 year, and I've seen lots of vids of the past year(s) but there's no Ali Top. I prefer the chrome anyway :p

He RARELY uses this thing anymore.. KoC is almost always played with the Bomber and the last time he's used this for Hysteria was probably at Wembley '07. Now he just uses one of his black ones..

 

The last time he's used this, from memory, was for KoC at Teignmouth.

 

Shame, I'm a huge fan of the Deloreans.. He should get different look ones.. the MB-1 Red and Santa look too similar and the Auto and Invincible are too similar. Black Ed's only used for Starlight and I don't think he even touches the Mirror Kaoss :(
