The 12 Guitars of Christmas

news_guitar.jpgIt is the giving season and there are 12 amazing items—signed guitars and other instrumental gear—up for auction.







Cool gift ideas perhaps?  Plus the funds from the sale go to a good cause so it’s the gift gives twice.

The guitars are signed Ben Harper, KT Tunstall, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Nikki Sixx, Fall Out Boy, Wolfmother, Jewel and mogul Richard Branson. Bon Jovi has signed a leather jacket, Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick has signed a bass drum cover and Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys has signed a cymbal.

The charity here is Virgin Unite, the not for profit Entrepreneurial Foundation for the Virgin Group and acts as a catalyst for entrepreneurial, business based solutions to social and environmental issues.

Also in conjunction with the auction, they are kicking off a contest that will run through March 31, 2008. For anyone who signs up on the Virgin Unite page on, they will be entered in a drawing to a pair of VIP tickets to the 2008 Virgin Festival in Baltimore in August.
