Get ACB of Caïna a new guitar for 2020

Andrew Curtis-Brignell (ACB) of Caïna is one of Britain's most innovative Black Metal Artists, and he's been a constant in the scene since 2004. As well as putting out a consistently high quality of music ACB has been an outspoken advocate for equality, justice and diversity in what is too often a scene associated with misogyny and sexism.
To quote "I absolutely believe that metal should be a safe space for women, people of colour, differently abled people, the LGBT community. There's nothing metal about arbitrary exclusionism. Safe space: unsafe music."

This activism was not without negative effects on his career, including a backlash from some other well known bands.  His record contract has recently ended, and these factors, coupled with extremely difficult personal circumstances have left him without a real guitar on which to compose and perform. (The only guitar he currently owns is a Squier that is little better than a kid's toy)

The funds raised here will be 100% used towards getting ACB a guitar as a gift from a grateful fan community.

Your support will mean a talented individual can continue to make music, and to perform at the highest level using professional grade equipment. Any extra funds raised will be used for ACB to upgrade other gear or as needed for his musical endeavors.

I am setting this up as someone who is a friend of ACB, and who wants him to feel that this community cares about him and what he does.

If you can afford to, please give something and let's help this to become a reality, we might not be able to do this in time for Xmas, but let's make 2020 a more hopeful year. The blackest of music is our light in dark times.
