Former The Verve star Nick Mccabe is selling off guitars and equipment to fans in a bid to boost his cash flow.

Launching the big "clear-out" on his page earlier this month (18May14), the guitarist is parting ways with gear that appeared in the band's videos and equipment he used in the studio.

The highlight is a 1972 Telecaster Deluxe guitar, which MCCabe played in the group's Love Is Noise video.

He writes, "The past two years have been hard on my bank balance," adding, "I'm actually extracting a lot of joy from selling all this stuff off, who'd have thought?"

But there was one item he had to withdraw from the sale after having second thoughts about parting with it - his famous red Fender Stratocaster.

He explains, "I've had all kinds of reactions to selling that guitar, but generally people closest to me say, 'You can't (sell it)'... Everything else is still up for grabs."
