Manson’s are pleased to announce the return of their legendary Guitar Show for 2012 as part of the shop’s 20th Anniversary celebrations. Still in the same ownership since forming in 1992, Manson’s have become world renowned as guitar specialists successfully combining a boutique guitar shop approach with a stock level and range that caters for all guitar players. Still a specialist single outlet in Exeter, Devon, Manson’s have facilities that have created one of the most famous one-stop guitar stores in the world with a client list that includes Led Zeppelin, Muse, Them Crooked Vultures, Biffy Clyro, Yes, Jethro Tull, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Lightning Seeds and many more.
The Manson’s Guitar Show has become respected for its dedication as a guitars only show and the level of clinicians and artists it attracts. Former guests have included John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, Justin Hawkins of The Darkness and Hot Leg, JJ Burnel from The Stranglers, Jan Akkerman, Frank Turner, Aziz Ibrahim, Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), Michael Manring, Walter Trout, Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), Jerry Donahue and a host of top clinicians and performers.
Manufacturers attending the 2010 show included a mixture of the big brands such as Marshall, Fender, Music Man, Peavey Faith, Orange Amplification, Freshman and Yamaha (and, of course, Rotosound) plus smaller boutique manufacturers and distributors including Patrick James Eggle, Huss And Dalton, Godin, Bare Knuckle Pickups and Zon Guitars. 2012 will no doubt bring a similar mix with 100% focus on guitars. A venue move to Exeter’s Corn Exchange puts the show smack bang in the middle of the city and in a venue more suited to live music as the centre’s largest musical venue.
