Manson Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Crazyeelboy, Sep 28, 2008.


  1. Does anyone here know much about Manson basses? I know that Hugh Manson makes basses for John Paul Jones, but I don't know anyting more about them. I have come across a very interesting (and expensive) Manson bass and I'm trying to figure out whether it is worth the price of admission.

    We have one in the family - a beautiful spalted top fretless four. Magnificent workmanship, and Hugh is a great guy.
     
  3. Ken: Thanks for the response. What kind of prices do these instruments command? The one I am thinking of is very expensive (although it is a very specific instrument), but I have no information to go on as to what kind of market value attaches to a Manson. Any thoughts?

    No idea, I'm afraid...
     
  5. That's the problem - the association with JPJ seems like a good thing, but there aren't enough of them out there to determine whether they have any market price. Anyway, thanks for the comments.
