SCHECTER GUITARS

& THE CURE

ILLUSTRATION

In 2016, legendary English rock band, The Cure, embarked on a world tour. Schecter Guitars were supplying them with guitars and basses for Robert Smith and Simon Gallup. Simon wanted a custom graphic on his bass, and asked me if I would be up for the challenge.

 

He had a very clear idea of what he wanted - a ‘heraldic’ style lion on the main body, and a rose with four curling leaves to represent his wife and four children.

 

This design has been used from 2016 to the present day - notably featuring on stage at their Glastonbury headline slot in 2019, and their Hyde Park 40th anniversary show. It has so far been made in yellow, black, pink and red. It is available to purchase from authorised Schecter dealers worldwide.
