Ginger’s Schecter Hellraiser “Chutzpah!” Guitar, Could Be Yours!

Ginger is selling his dark red sunburst Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 guitar – the very guitar used in the writing and recording of Chutzpah! and Chutzpah! Jnr, and played during the Chutzpah! tour and more recent Wildhearts tours.

Extensively customised through his trademark application of stickers and decals, this is a chance to own a one-off piece of rock history.

Ginger says:
“When Chutzpah! came out, to roaring reviews, most people complimented us on the guitar sound. Even live, people would delight in the fact that we had a modern edge, and it was all down to this thing before you.

This beautiful guitar was responsible for the writing and recording of Chutzpah! and Chutzpah! Jnr, and the world tour that followed.

Of course it didn’t retire there, as I played it, almost exclusively, for many volume packed years, as my go-to guitar. Perfect tone, insanely good tuning (I never owned a tuner in the years I played this one live) and now covered in stickers from all round the world.

On opening up the box there was even an original tour set list, so as an added bonus I’ll chuck in some personal items from the time. Just bits and pieces from that period in Wildheart’s history.

But the main draw, obviously, is this sublime piece of our story. The Chutzpah! guitar.

It is being auctioned from Ginger’s official eBay page at www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ginger-Wildhearts-Schecter-Hellraiser-Solo-6-guitar-dark-red-sunburst-colour/292226690419. You can see the details about the guitar and shipping details on the listing page.

Check it out in action playing Mazel Tov Cocktail on stage during the 2009 Chutzpah! tour (this was before it was stickered up),

The auction will run until Monday 4th September – let’s find this a good home!

Summer Ireland Solo Shows

Ginger will be making his way back over the Irish Sea for 2 very special, intimate shows in Dublin and Belfast next week.

Hot off his support slot with The Levellers, Ginger will once again be joined by his musical cohorts Jase Edwards, Stix, and Sophia Vassalos, where they will perform brand new material from Ginger’s latest album Ghost In The Tanglewood, as well some of his more established tracks from his extensive back catalogue!

Ginger says:
I can’t wait to come back to The Sugar Club. I made so many friends the last time that I’d like to live in Dublin and play the Sugar Club once a week. Sadly, as an international jet setting fashion guru and all round style magnet, visiting is my only available option, so we’ll both have to make do with the odd gig now and then.

So waddya say let’s make it an unforgettable night, eh?

I dunno, I’ve got an incredibly good feeling about this!
See you at the bar. Mines a whiskey. Irish only.”

The two Irish dates are as follows:

  • Fri 4th August, Dublin Sugar Club – Tickets
  • Sat 5th August, Ballymena Diamond Rock Club – Tickets
  •  

    For those of you travelling from Belfast, the Diamond Rock Club have a coach service running from Katy Dalys which will get you to the Diamond Rock Club in time for the show – click here for more details. Continue reading
