Ron McGovney, the former bassist for Metallica, is auctioning his bass on eBay. Bids will be open until November, 6th at 7:03pm Pacific Standard Time.
The bass is a Fender Precision, purchased in 1985 and used in his post-Metallica band Phantasm. McGovney wrote, “This is an awesome bass and it does have a lot of history to it. I know somebody will really love it!”
Along with the bass the winning bidder will get some other memorabilia including:
- The original sales receipt – if you’re a Metallica collector you’ll see that the listed phone number is the same from the old business cards
- A photo of a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame plaque including McGovney for the Metallica song “Hit the Lights”
- A photo of McGovney with Robert Trujillo and Jason Newsted in Cleveland prior to Metallica’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction
