I’m a little worried, I just read over at one of my favourite guitar blogs Guitar MX that Hugh Manson from Manson Guitars is building guitars specifically for the Led Zeppelin reunion gig in November. Now Hugh Manson is a very talented luthier but are we going to see Jimmy Page running around playing this Manson toilet seat creation? No of course we aren’t but it made for a nice photo and blog title, in fact Hugh has apparently made quite a few Bass guitars for John Paul Jones over the years so maybe we will only see Manson Basses at the reunion? I can’t see Jimmy switching his Les Paul really.
I’d never heard of Manson Guitars before but they seem to be mainly Strat or Tele shaped and lots of nice flame and quilted maple. Check out his current range at MansonGuitars.co.uk
