Ginger Wildheart Selling Guitar on Ebay – Chutzpah!
Ginger Wildheart is selling a guitar from his personal collection on Ebay. The current bid is £1,120.00 (approx. $1450 US).
The auction ended on September 4, 2017. The guitar sold for £5,300.00 (approx. $6914.38 US).
About the guitar, 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 Chutzpah! 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.
This is the Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 guitar in dark red sunburst color.
This is the very guitar used by Ginger Wildheart to write, record, promote and tour The Wildheart’s 2009 album, Chutzpah! and Chutzpah! Jnr.
It has been personlized in Ginger’s own style, by covering it with stickers that he has obtained on his travels as the lead guitarist and singer of rock band The Wildhearts. This is a little piece of history, and a completely unique, one-of-a-kind guitar.
It comes complete with hard case (also stickered up!), and is in great condition.
