Not only is this an incredibly valuable guitar in its own right, but it has been the sound behind a platinum selling rock band that MTV, VH1 and Classic Rock Magazine have all recognized as having produced one of the greatest rock songs of the 21st century! This guitar came to us directly from The Darkness guitarist and founding member, Dan Hawkins. Our studio's producer & engineer James Curtis-Thomas actually mixed "The Age of Darkness" bonus track on the Motorheart album. This is an investment quality Fender guitar from an iconic band with multiple BRIT awards, Kerrang! awards, MTV awards, Metal Hammer Golden God awards and more...for the price of a new Rolex watch. I'd rather have this, and I know I'd have more fun with it. Full provenance and signed COA included. We also have the band's 60th Anniversary Gibson Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Reissue V2 that was used for the guitar tones on their latest album "Motorheart" which they are now touring across the UK and Europe! In addition, we have two of the band's Wizard amps used for recording/touring, their short-scale Fender Mustang Bass used for the last record and their Gibson SJ-200 acoustic guitar featured in the famous "Christmas Time" and "Friday Night" music videos!
This historic Fender guitar owned by The Darkness is part of the world famous instrument collection at Essex Recording Studios! Check out our website and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, TWITCH and YouTube! @essexrecordingstudios
