Mansons Guitar Show Confirms John Paul Jones and Incredible Charity  Raffle Prizes

[10.06.2010] Manson’s Guitar Shop is proud to announce the  legendary bass player John Paul Jones ( Led Zeppelin/ Them Crooked Vultures )  will be appearing at this years show taking place Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th  October.

The 2010 Mansons Guitar Show is set to be both the biggest  and best show yet with a record number of exhibitors confirmed including  virtually every great guitar company on the planet! Manufacturers will be  bringing their best model examples to exhibit at the prestigious weekend with  several UK exclusive launches confirmed. A great mixture of the small  independent guitar companies are rubbing shoulders with large corporates, and  the presence of guitar legends such as John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin means  Manson’s Guitar Show is undoubtedly the UK’s premier guitar lovers event. A full  list of exhibitors and artists is attached separately.

We are also  proud to announce that Manson’s Guitar Show is set to be one of the most unique  in terms of prize-winning opportunities and has grown even greater this year.  For 2010 Ampeg are giving away a bass rig signed by its roster of bass artists  that includes members of The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, Black Sabbath,  King’s-X, Alice In Chains, The Smashing Pumpkins, and many others. Marshall will  be offering a signed amplifier by one of their legendary artists and Avid  Distribution are giving away one of their Eleven Rack systems worth nearly £800.  Acoustic players are equally well looked after with Faith and Freshman Guitars  offering mouth watering prizes. You can win these prizes through the charity  raffle at the show, charity auction or through an exclusive Express And Echo  giveaway.

Manson’s clinic, demonstration and performance room will  be running flat out throughout the weekend. Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), Walter  Trout (Blues Legend), Jerry Donahue (The Hellecasters), Jan Akkerman (Focus),  Alex Hutchings, Jas Morris (Guitarist Of The Year Winner), Stuart Clayton (Carl  Palmer Band), Chris George (Marshall Official Demonstrator), and flying in  exclusively for the Manson’s Show US bass artist Michael Manring (Zon Guitars)  will all be appearing at the show.

More giveaways, prizes and  amazing deals means one day simply won’t be enough: luckily our weekend special  ticket should take care of that problem. Tickets available now in-store or  online, with concessions for students and under 16’s.
