Manson E-Bass John Paul Jones Signature Bass Quilt Top
If you’re a fan of Led Zeppelin or Them Crooked Vultures you’ll know that JPJ has been using a collection of custom Manson instruments for many years. 4-, 5-, 8-, 10-, 12-string and many custom one-offs have graced the stage with the bass master including the triumphant return of Led Zeppelin in December 2007, touring the world with Josh Homme and Dave Grohl and even in the experimental realms of music with Supersilent or Tres Coyotes.
For over a decade Manson Guitar Works has made available a low production unit made in Europe with dedicated quality inspection and final set-up at the Manson Guitar Works premises in the UK. Now, for 2021, we have fully updated the bass which now feature new Aguilar pickups and circuitry, as well as an all new boutique feel see-through satin black finish. Final touch is delivery in a UK made luxurious fitted hardcase.
"We'd go as far to say this is the fastest neck we've ever played." Bass Guitar Magazine
