Special guitars go under the hammer

Several highly collectible guitars were sold for charity.
Great deals on musical instruments
A number of special guitars went under the hammer yesterday in a bid to raise cash for charity.

On September 22nd at the Sound and Vision Guitar Auction in London a special-edition Fender Stratocaster owned and donated by The Shadows' lead guitarist Hank Marvin and a Gibson SG guitar designed by well known sculptor and wood carver Doug Rowell both went up for sale.

All proceeds from the sale, which also saw a guitar lesson with Newton Faulkner being sold, went to Cancer Research.

The other two lots were a Gibson SG painted by surreal artist Rick Garcia and an acoustic guitar donated by Free and Bad Company front man Paul Rodgers.

Bids for each of the guitars started at above the £1,000 mark, with the Fender opening at a whopping £3,000.

The music lesson started at £300.

The auction event, which also included live entertainment was invite only, however the public were free to submit bids by email if they wanted to bag one of the pieces of stunning music memorabilia.

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity and helps thousands of people each year.
