“After last year’s Great Circle Tour, our gear storage locker is completely full. We want to pass these instruments on to musicians who will appreciate and use them,” said guitarist/keyboardist Jim Moginie on the sale. “Some of the items we’re selling have been used more than others, but everything has been broken in by the band in one way or another.”
Midnight Oil have been performing since the ’70s and last year reunited for their first tour since 2002. Items from the massive history for sale include a 1962 Fiesta Red Fender Jazzmaster electric guitar used by Midnight Oil during The Great Circle World Tour in 2017 and a Roland RD500 stage keyboard that Moginie used on tour for many years. “It sounds great—I’m sorry to see it go!” he said.
