Well, the first leg of the tour has been fun! Certainly enjoying myself!

Unfortunately, my V-kit has finally thrown in the towel at all the gigging and hard-work it's been put to.
Something like 100+ gigs (yes really), rehearsals, two music videos and all the transportation and accidents along the way have taken their toll.

At our Kings Cross gig, my cymbal triggers began to fail, and I had one PD pad fail on one edge completely.
Despite me stripping the pads in an attempt to fix them, they are simply unfixable, completely and utterly worn out.

On top of this, the drum brain is battered with a VERY wobbly volume pot, and the connector for my kick trigger is currently gaffered to the side of the trigger!

Enough, really IS enough.

Reluctantly, in order to raise the money for a new kit I will be putting two of my guitars up for sale in the coming weeks. A transparent blueGibson Les Paul DC, exactly like this:


also my Ibanez RG7620 7 string exactly like this:


It's going to be really tough to see these guitars go, and unfortunately , as I don't play them that often, and as I'm a full-time drummer now, they have to go.

Neither of them have seen much use, and bar one chip on the Ibanez, both are in essentially 'as new condition'.

I'm asking for offers around £875 for the Les Paul DC, and around £650 for the Ibanez

If you know anyone who might be interested in these guitars, please pass this on, Thanks.

Hey Lue!

Well, yep, I'm glad that when I had some disposable income I did put it into instruments that would have some future retail value. Just upset that it's come to having to get rid of them :(

Free CD's will be sent out early next month, am entering all the details into the system today as it happens!
