The Manson's Guitar Show (MGS), is back for its 16th spectacular year and will again be held at the Riverside Leisure Centre, Exeter on October 23rd and 24th 2010. Tickets are on sale now and the first 250 bookings will receive a free set of Rotosound R9 or R10 top selling nickel on steel guitar strings worth £6.50.
MGS is the UK's biggest regional guitar show and over the last two years has seen Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Pink Floyd's Guy Pratt make appearances. It will feature over forty exhibitors displaying some of the coolest gear ready for you to check out. Already confirmed exhibitors include Roland, Bare Knuckle Pickups, Marshall, Orange, Freshman, PRS and Rotosound, who have announced Walter Trout will be having a signing session on their stand at 3pm on Sunday 24th.
Whether you play the electric, acoustic or bass guitar; whatever your style is, rock, jazz, classical or simply strumming, over the two days the show will offer you real hands on experience trying new products and guitar accessories. In addition, this incredible show will offer you the opportunity to see gear demonstrations (Martin Barre from Jethro Tull is confirmed to appear), take part in workshops as well as ask the experts all those burning questions you have. In fact MGS 2010 offers you practically everything to do with guitars, plus there will be great shows deals and amazing prizes!
