all i can remember at the moment is that they're custom built, based on a telecaster design and have crazy knobs. i think they're called Manson Guitars...i don't know much about the company.
which video were you watching?

He plays Manson guitars. Specifically Hugh Manson guitars (his brother Andy makes wonderful acoustic guitars, including John Paul Jones triple neck).

Several of Matt Bellamey's guitars have effects built in, inculding a MXR Phase 90, a zVex Fuzz Factory, zVex Fuzz Probe, and a MIDI touch strip for controlling whammy pedals. Some of them also have Graphtech Ghost saddles and internal Roland GK-2A's.

Hugh Manson's made some crazy guitars before. I forget the details, but they were crazy.

Here's a pic of Bellamy's guitar.Looks like he's got a Quad-rails, a soapbar P-90 and one of those ceramic blade single-coils, there.

And here's an interesting Manson creation, though not what I was thinking of.

I have had an odd interest with Matt Bellamy's gear for a while now. Everything that he is currently using is listed here. Other gear that he's use and also the band's gear in general is listed here.

That right there is his most complicated guitar to date. It features:
Kent Armstrong Motherbucker
Seymour Duncan Hot P-90
Z-Vex Fuzz Factory
Z-Vex Wah Probe
MXR Phase 90
MIDI strip
Fernandes Sustainiac system
Roland GK-2 MIDI pickup
And a killswitch.

I guess the thing weighs like 1 and a half Les Pauls.

Ah, I love having a killswitch on my guitars. My LP has the electronics, where it already has a sort of killswitch capability built in, but I had to make one in my Strat. Simple mod, but I use it a lot.

Yeah, they sound like a lot of fun to have. I'm trying to figure out how one would work with a guitar that is using active pickups though. I do plan on eventually getting an EMG 81 so that I can move my 85 into the neck position. I want to have the whole thing wired like a Les Paul.

i'm pretty sure all you need to make a kill switch is a switch to put between the signal and the output jack. i don't think that active/passive would really matter.
