Gibson Guitartown London, the capitals hottest free summer public exhibition is proud to announce that all 60 featured one off hand painted and signed guitars are now available to bid online at Ebay. This is your opportunity to own a piece of rock 'n roll history. Gibson Guitartown London is a charity inspired campaign bringing the power of music together with art to raise money for The Prince's Trust, Nordoff- Robbins Music Therapy and Teenage Cancer Trust. All money raised from the sale of the 60 featured guitars at auction will be split equally between the three designated charities.
Between June 2007 to September 2007 thirty 10 foot hand painted, free standing replica Gibson Les Paul guitars were on public display outside at More London on London's South Bank by City Hall, SE1. An additional 30 hand painted and signed regular sized Gibson SG guitars were publicly displayed around The O2 in Greenwich. All the associated visual artists including Sir Peter Blake and the caricaturist Gerald Scarfe collaborated with many of Britain’s best known and respected musicians exclusively for the Gibson Guitartown London charity campaign.
All the individual 10 foot Gibson Les Paul guitars have all been personally signed by musicians such as Sir Paul McCartney, Brian May, Robert Plant, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osbourne, KT Tunstall, New Order, Dirty Pretty Things, Hard-Fi, Kasabian, Magic Numbers, James Blunt, Katie Melua, Mark Knopfler, Roxy Music and The Stereophonics to name a few.
All the Gibson SG guitars have been personally signed by musicians such as Ronnie Wood, Paul Rodgers, Roger Waters, Corinne Bailey Rae, Slash, Lemmy and Depeche Mode, The View, The Fratellis, Lost Prophets, Kaiser Chiefs and Mark Ronson to name a few.
All the 60 guitars will be sold at the charity auction event to be held in London in late November. In the meantime, you can now bid online at Ebay for these unique hand painted and signed Gibson Guitars.
