The 2009 Manson’s Guitar Show, which is to take place on October 24th and 25th at the Riverside Leisure Centre, Exeter, has announced a varied line up of exhibitors and artists.
Over 40 trade stands have been booked, with exhibitors including Marshall, Peavey, PRS, Ernie Ball, Rotosound, Orange, Fender and Roland who will be rubbing shoulders with specialised companies such as Godin, Peerless, Trace Elliot and G&L. For the acoustic side of the show, brands confirmed include Martin, Faith, Taylor, Freshman, Huss & Dalton, Patrick James Eggle, Yairi and Tanglewood, among others.
There will, of course, be show deals, an array of equipment, new product launches and experts on hand to demonstrate the gear and answer any questions.
The show will have a separate clinic room, which will offer free demos and interactive workshops throughout the weekend. Among the artists confirmed are the following.
Guy Pratt (Pink Floyd)
Mark Chadwick (The Levellers)
Frank Turner (Patrick Eggle Guitars)
Steve Fairclough (Fairclough Guitars)
Dario Cortese (Music Man Guitars)
Chris George Band (Marshall Amplification)
Stuart Clayton (Carl Palmer)
Jas Morris (Mansons/Blackheart)
Alex Hutchings (BOSS/Roland)
Ellen Miller (Tanglewood Guitars)
Gavin Wilson (JHS)
There will also be prizes on offer at the show for visitors (although details have not yet been given). Last year's show saw over £3,000 worth of equipment from Marshall, Orange and Peavey up for grabs.
