2 Custom UltraCures for RAH show & auction

From Schecter on Facebook: "One of the two Custom ULTRACURE's made for Robert Smith to play at Roger Daltrey's Teenage Cancer Trust show on March 29th at London's famed Royal Albert Hall.

After playing these two Signature models, Robert and The Cure will sign them to be auctioned for this very worth charity.

Schecter Guitar is proud to stand with The Cure to help.

  1. Very nice. I like the sound of these guitars more and more ....

  2. If only I had that much disposable income. I'm working on convincing the wife $250 for bottle Rock tickets are doable.

  3. If you manage it, Skraps, let me know your secret. Mine said, "We already spent $250 for Decemberists tickets for that night." Fair point.

    1. We did get single day tickets for Bottle Rock @ $150 each. I think the only reason she agreed is the show is 20 minutes from home, we can park at a friends house and bike to the actual show, and the show is on my birthday.

  4. I still don't get the current obsession of auctions instead of raffles. Surely in this case, if promoted correctly, enough Cure fans worldwide would chip in £1 each in a raffle and raise far far more money than one person with a winning bid.

    Hmm...I've been to enough sportsmans dinners and seen huge bids placed on items and heard what are obviously business owners saying they're going to put items up as competition prizes on their websites or as staff incentives for their employees.

    I appreciate the initial money goes to good causes, but I know as fact business owners can even claim tax back on this stuff, not to mention 'real people' don't have a hope in hell of winning, it makes me feel uneasy.

    Anyway, good cause, know...
