Peter Hook: The New Order Collection

 
  Lot 140
 

SHERGOLD MARATHON BLACK 6 STRING BASS GUITAR

SHERGOLD MARATHON BLACK 6 STRING BASS GUITAR. Serial No: 35686. Hard case.

This was purchased again as a spare, see above. From the pair, the Joy Division one now sold (weirdly a world-renowned bassist and huge fan of Joy Division was interested in buying that guitar, and even went to the extent of sending his guitar specialist over from Ireland to Omega Auctions to inspect it, decided that because the headstock had been repaired (I’d smashed it on some twats head after he spat on Ian Curtis) but because of that it wasn’t good enough to buy). This guitar has toured the world extensively, like me… many, many times. Great guitars. A great guitar responsible ‘for Blue Monday’, ‘Angel Dust’, ‘Best and Marsh’, ‘Cries and Whispers’, ‘Doubts Even Here’, ‘Ecstasy’, ‘Your Silent Face’ and even ‘World in Motion’ to mention but a few. I will be sorry to see her go.

Sold for £9,400
