Comes with a chargeable box which has a logo which lights up, while the opening of the ‘Shot In The Dark’ plays through an in-built speaker. Also comes with a 20-Page book, and of course, a charging cable!
Few other nice bits announced again in the last 7 days. BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG of Green Day has a new covers album coming out (indies only baby blue vinyl on this one), which he has recorded during lockdown.
