Manson John Paul Jones Signature E-Bass

 Whether looking forward as the bassist in Them Crooked Vultures laying down a 
groove with Dave Grohl and Joshua Homme, or to the past as the iconic legend, 
riff-master and songwriter in Led Zeppelin, John Paul Jones has a bass pedigree 
second to none. John has been performing with a vast collection of Manson 
Guitars creations for the past three decades both in the studio and for live 
work, including the historic Led Zeppelin reunion and also conquering the world 
all over again with Them Crooked Vultures. Now, after many years of refining, 
researching and testing, the legendary performer has placed his name to the 
main four-string Manson bass guitar that has been regularly seen in action 
across John's projects for the past 16 years.

The Manson John Paul Jones E-Bass model is a replica of the bass that Hugh 
Manson made in the early 90s and has become John's first call four-string ever 
since. Featuring a maple through-neck construction, figured maple top, Aged 
Cherry Sunburst high gloss lacquer, ebony fingerboard, EMG pickups and active 
circuit, Hipshot D-Tuner, Schaller machineheads and Badass bridge, the specs 
reflect exactly the current upgraded hardware of the bass John is currently 
using on tour with Them Crooked Vultures.

Priced at a competitive ?2099 ($3200, includes high quality gig bag), the bass 
is currently available exclusively from Mansons Guitar Shop.
