Following Ginger’s recent mental health issues, he has this to say of the tour:

I am fully committed to the Mutation tour in October, and all other Mutation activity to come. I consider this music a catharsis, a way of channeling the aggression and desperation that I’m currently experiencing.
These shows will act as essential therapy in keeping me focused and providing a goal to strive for in my mental health well-being. I’m maintaining my fitness and keeping my eye on the prize.
When I say that we will rid ourselves of our demons on every date of this tour in mean it 100 per cent. This will not be a drill.

Let’s join Ginger, Scott and Denzel for some much needed live music therapy. Continue reading

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!
