At the fashion Rocks show in New York last week, various celebrities of music and film kicked off fashion week with a raucous concert. After the partying was over, the celebs helped Hurricane Katrina victims by signing a Gibson ES 335 in Ebony guitar that will later be placed up for auction.
Some of the names affixed to the guitar include Billy Idol, Duran Duran, Tim McGraw, Alicia Keys, Pharell Williams, Rebecca Romijn, Wilmer Valderama, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Camryn Manheim, Mark McGrath, Jesse Metcalf, Macy Gray, Kim Catrall, Ashanti, Petra Nemcova, Tyra Banks, Thalia, Lisa Marie Presley, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.
While the Gibson normally sells for $3,153, the autographed version is sure to sell for a lot more. You can bid on the guitar by going to this online auction. The bidding is already up to $2,605 and there is 5 days left.
Bidding ends at midnight on Friday and the winner will be announced Monday on CBS’ The Early Show.
Proceeds from the auction will go to The Red Cross and The Salvation Army.
