Manson’s Guitar Shop has announced that  John Paul Jones  will be appearing at this year’s show which takes place on  Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October 2010.

Here’s the  info:

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 can be seen below.

Manson’s Guitar Show also has some unique prize-winning opportunities this year. For 2010, Ampeg is 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 is 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.

Tickets are available now in-store or online, with concessions for students and under 16’s.
