Who needs a '66 Gibson when you have a plastic Schecter. ; )

It will be interesting to see who shows up on stage at Bestival!!
Haha can you imagine if Porl turns up without any guitars.
Hi. Has it been confirmed that Porl has gone again?
Nope. Never been officially confirmed by Robert or Porl.
They'll play as a trio.
Thank you, Craig. Very much. The only thing I will add about this guitar is this: just because it was Porl's guitar at one time doesn't necessarily mean that he was the last person to own it. I don't think he's ever been seen with it since 2005, and he hasn't played that since the Page & Plant days. There was someone who actually claimed that Porl had given away a red Gibson guitar to them years ago. It wouldn't be out of the ordinary for Porl to do that. It could be that owner who is unloading it now, so this could have nothing to do with Porl himself. Especially since the guitar is not being posted at the shop where the others were sold off. Or it could be that Porl has three of those and has decided he only needs two. Either way I wouldn't go Chicken Little about it.
looks like the one he played during Wish tour. *sniffle* i could never sell that!
Why does this band have no interest in their classic instruments anymore? They have not made a decent record (or decent sounding record) since they started playing those god-fucking-awful Shecters.If they ditched those terrible sounding nu-metal guitars, The Cure could probably produce a record that would warrant more than half a dozen listens.I would love to own that Gibson, but it is beyond sad to see that Porl has put it on ebay.I would like to see instead that those horrible Shecters were used for kindling.
Thanks for posting stuff like this, everyone please keep eyes peeled should more instruments turn up for sale...
