Gibson’s Ukraine Relief Auction has some famous friends chipping in, with contributions from legends McCartney, Slash, The Rolling Stones, and Margo Price.
The iconic instrument brand Gibson has reached out its philanthropic arm to bring the music community together to stand behind the Ukraine Relief effort, raising awareness and funds to aid the people of Ukraine.
Guitar giant Gibson has created a number of unique Les Paul electric guitars in honour of Ukraine. The guitars are finished in the Azure blue and gold colours of the Ukrainian flag and have been used onstage by Paul McCartney, Slash, and Fher Olvera of Maná, and are set to be auctioned off in November to raise funds for humanitarian aid in Ukraine.
Autograph books traveling alongside each guitar have been autographed by Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Slash, Fher Olvera of Maná, Nile Rodgers of Chic, Mark Knopfler, Lzzy Hale, Margo Price, Alex Lifeson, Blossoms, The Fratellis, Kasabian, Madness, Maisie Peters, Paloma Faith, The Charlatans, The Vaccines, Toyah, My Chemical Romance, and actor Jason Momoa, among others.
