More Silverchair More Silverchair

Fans of iconic Australian outfit Silverchair are getting the chance to own some serious music history.

Bassist Chris Joannou has announced he will be selling off a bunch of gear that he used in the studio and on tour, including bass guitars, amps and synthesizers.

It will officially launch on the Reverb website this Thursday (8 March).

"The gear for sale in my Reverb shop needs to go to a loving home — especially the bass guitars that have been with me on tour," Joannou said,

"They’re like family to me...they all have names. They’ve been with me for so long, toured all over the world with me, they’ve seen me at my best and at my worst.

But I’m no longer using them and it's time for someone else to enjoy them."

The Official Chris Joannou of Silverchair Reverb Shop will feature a late ‘70s white Fender Precision bass guitar affectionately named "Whitey" by Joannou, and a 1975 Natural Fender Precision bass guitar Joannou called "Phil". 

Both served as Joannou’s main bass guitars while Silverchair was on tour supporting its fifth and final studio album, the ARIA Award-winning Young Modern.

"It’s always hard to part with gear – especially when I have so much history with them all," Joannou said.

"But this gear shouldn’t be sitting around my home, it should be in someone’s hands being played."
