PCAC has just turned 2 years old and what better way to finish our second year than by having 9 auctions, releasing a new custom, being guests at Bloodstock and donating another $1975 to charities
Lee finally released the Tom Araya custom pick.
Lee has been a lifelong fan of Slayer and to say he is a little starstruck by having Tom on board would be a huge understatement. Lee met with Tom last year at Bloodstock and Tom agreed straight away to do a pick. Following on from the success of the Sandra Araya pick this was always going to be a massively sort after pick and the demand for this pick was incredible.
Thanks Tom and Sandra for your support of PCAC
