About This Listing

This guitar is identical to the guitar Jason Becker used on his Perpetual Burn album.

Perpetual Burn has been the benchmark "shred" album since it came out over 25 years ago.

If you know Jason Becker, you know that he has been dealing with ALS over the last 25 years... The health-care expenses are extraordinary, as you can imagine.

So we are donating 100% of what we receive for this guitar to Jason Becker's care.

Think of buying this more like a donation to Jason Becker, where you receive something incredibly cool for your kindness.

We have not spoken with the Beckers yet, but we hope (and believe) that this guitar could be sent to the Beckers first, for their autograph / photo / thumbprint, before being sent along to you.

NOTE: This is NOT Jason's personal guitar... This is an identical guitar to the one he used on that album. We are not aware of the existence of another identical white Hurricane like Jason's.

Not only are we giving up ALL of our money for this guitar for Jason's care, we will even pay to ship it to you (or to the Beckers), as you wish, as an additional contribution.

According to Wikipedia:

On Perpetual Burn, Becker said on his message board: "I used my white and black Hurricane guitar for everything. For clean tone I went direct. For dirty tone I used a 100 Watt Marshall with a Boss Super Overdrive pedal."

The Moridira Hurricane guitar he used is called a Limited Edition LTD.2 model, believed to be made in Japan. (It is not a Hurricane EX series, which appears to be lower quality.) His LTD.2 was a "strat copy", but with a HSS pickup setup, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, and unique Floyd Rose where you don't have to cut the strings.

For pickups, Becker said on his message board: "I just used the stock pickups it came with." The pickups were Japanese-made pickups.

On the cover of Perpetual Burn he is pictured with a blue Hurricane guitar. He did not use this blue guitar on Perpetual Burn. Differences on this guitar from his first Hurricane include DiMarzio pickups, a maple fretboard, and 24 frets.

(end Wikipedia)

The goal, of course, is to get as much money to Jason as possible. We will ask Reverb.com to send the money directly to Jason instead of to us. We will also ask Reverb to waive or reduce their fees in the spirit of helping Jason Becker.

We will start this guitar out at $10,000... and steadily lower the price over time until the guitar is sold...

Once again, we urge you to think of this as a donation to Jason, where you get something really cool for your kindness, as opposed to buying a guitar. Thanks for looking.
