Gerald Scarfe with Pink Floyd The Wall SG
On 20 November at the IndigO2 in Greenwich, Gibson Guitartown London will auction off 62 Gibson SGs which have been handpainted and autographed by some of music’s biggest names.
Instruments going under the hammer will raise money for three charities: Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, The Prince’s Trust and Teenage Cancer Trust.
The collection includes an SG handpainted and signed by Ronnie Wood, featuring a detailed image of The Royal Albert Hall drawn in pastels. Also available is the Roger Waters signed Gibson SG guitar handpainted by caricaturist Gerald Scarfe, with the iconic Pink Floyd The Wall imagery covering the front, back and neck of the guitar. Both guitars were displayed The O2 Arena, London from June 2007 to September 2007, attracting over 500,000 visitors.
Other star participants include Sir Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Bruce Dickinson, Brian May, Ozzy Osbourne, Mark Knopfler, Sir Bob Geldof, New Order, Roxy Music, Kasabian, Razorlight, Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, KT Tunstall, James Blunt and Slash plus many more.
