Ex-Megadeth Guitarist Chris Broderick Selling Custom Guitar on Ebay
Former Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick is auctioning one of his custom Jackson guitars on Ebay. Proceeds from the auction will go to Dorraine Williams (aka Dore), who was diagnosed with stage III Ovarian Cancer on April 16th. Dore’s husband, Van Williams, is an accomplished drummer who has worked with several bands, including Nevermore, Ashes of Ares and Ghost Ship Octavius. Van is still in the music industry and freelances as a graphic designer, however, pay is sporadic and now with helping Dore with her recovery, touring and performance opportunities are extremely limited. At the time of this posting, the price was at US $2,600.00 after 23 bids.
“This guitar is one of my personal Jackson Chris Broderick, transparent black, 6 string soloist retailing at $4,138 new. This guitar has toured with me all over the globe while I was in Megadeth, from Australia, and Europe to North America to name a few places. The guitar looks, feels and plays great and is currently tuned to D standard like it was when I played with Megadeth. There are a few scuffs and dings (pictured) though they are minor and where earned in the heat of battle on stage Hahahah. All of the profits from this sale will go to Van and Dore Williams to help with their fight against cancer this holiday season. If buyer wishes the guitar can be signed and will include an autographed photo.”

Less than 2 days left to get this guitar I played at @bloodstockopenair 2014. http://r.ebay.com/O1Lkkh All proceeds go to Dore Williams (wife of Van Williams from Nevermore) cancer treatment fund. The eBay link is in my bio.
