Bee Gee to auction off Epiphone guitar
Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees has donated one of his Epiphone Hummingbird acoustic guitars to a charity auction.
The Edinburgh Evening News reports that Hope and Homes for Children will benefit from the sale of the item, which will be accompanied by a letter of provenance.
It is thought that the relationship between the Bee Gee and the guitar will see it sell for significantly more than a standard Epiphone acoustic, which can retail from between £89 and £349.
"To have Barry's guitar among the lots is fantastic," commented Sue Lindsay, a campaigner on behalf of the charity.
"The fact that he's even going to write a personal letter to whoever wins it is wonderful."
Ms Lindsay explained that the donation "was very generous", as the instrument is part of Gibb's cherished collection of guitars.
The acoustic features a rosewood fretboard, with the body constructed from solid spruce and mahogany.Posted on 23 Feb 2009 11:52 to category : Band / Celebrity News
