Guitarist extraordinaire Marty Friedman has just announced that he has partnered with Reverb.com to sell almost 20 musical instruments and pieces of gear from his personal collection throughout the years. The Marty Friedman Reverb Shop with officially launch on Tuesday, October 23rd, but you can preview the items that will be available here. Check out the images below to get a taste of what’s to come.
The sale will feature many Crate amplifier and amplifier half stacks that Friedman used on every Megadeth tour and recording from 1993-1999. According to Friedman:
“These are the amps responsible for my sounds back then. If you saw me on tour from around 1993 until the end of the decade, these are the actual cabinets and amps that I was playing through. If you’ve heard any of the work that I’ve done on albums from the same time period, it was done on these amps and cabs,” Friedman said. “They are workhorse amps that I used for hundreds of shows. Each piece of gear that I’m selling in my Reverb Shop has helped shape my career, whether it was used on stage and in the studio with Megadeth or to create one of my solo albums. Instead of sitting around and collecting dust, the gear should be in the hands of a fan or a musician who will take it and create something great with it.”
The sale will include items like a Black 1999 Gibson Les Paul Standard electric guitar, a 1990s Bradley Firebird-Style Copy electric guitar, and a Tech 21 Trademark 60 amplifier, all of which have been played by Friedman for years and years. You’ll definitely be a part of history by getting something from this event, and the big takeaway is that if you’re a big Marty Friedman or Megadeth fanatic, this is one sale you’re definitely going to want to be ready for.
Friedman’s 14th solo album, One Bad M.F. Live!, comes out on October 19th via Prosthetic Records, which you can pre-order here!
