Talk about raising some serious cash for charity by donating an incredible piece of history. A guitar signed by so many artists is amazing in itself. But check out the looks of this electric guitar. It’s very Grateful Dead in looks and style.
So maybe we don’t have a cool half million laying around to bid on something like this, but we would have loved to see it in person. For the moment, a photo will do.
More about the guitar:
An electric guitar signed by Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann was auctioned for $526,000 on Sunday during the band’s epic “Fare Thee Well” concert in Chicago. The commemorative six-string – played onstage by Weir during the band’s June 28th show in Santa Clara, California – was sold by D’Angelico Guitars and HeadCount, a non-profit that “works with musicians to promote participation in democracy.”
