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.
“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),
on YouTube here.
The auction will run until Monday 4th September – let’s find this a good home!
