American power metallers ICED EARTH recently announced that they are in the process of setting up a new headquarters for everything concerning the band, including a new studio for future recordings. Now, the band’s main man, Jon Schaffer has decided to sell some of his electric guitars to help finance the new project.
Jon states, “I’m selling a few guitars that have been on various recordings as well as some that were bought for my personal collection. We need to raise a large amount of money to complete the vision of our new headquarters, and begin this new chapter in the bands march to independence, to thrive in the ever-changing music business. There are some pretty killer guitars in the collection, so I urge die-hard fans, and guitar collectors alike, to go to Carter Vintage Guitars and see what’s there.”
Jon Schaffer is selling 17 of his best guitars on the Carter Vintage Guitars website at fair prices and all instruments are documented with a letter from him. It is surely very difficult for any guitarist to sell their instruments, but Jon is doing it for the band’s future, which is admirable. Many fans of the band have claimed that they are ready to help by donating, however ICED EARTH has not asked for any donation yet.
