This year's show will feature over forty exhibitors - Roland, Bare Knuckle Pickups, Marshall, Orange, Freshman, PRS and Rotosound are already confirmed. The latter has announced Walter Trout will be having a signing session on their stand at 3pm on Sunday 24.

Recent MGS shows have included guests including Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones (luthier Hugh Manson builds custom basses for John as well as guitars for Muse's Matt Bellamy)and former Pink Floyd and David Gilmour touring bassist Guy Pratt.

A gear demonstration from Martin Barre from Jethro Tull will feature this year and more artists are set to be confirmed in the coming months.
