Dont know who made the purchase...

Gee whiz, I can think of better things to do with almost a million bucks.

 

But if it was for charity, then it's worth every penny. :thu:

Proceeds are going to his Crossroads Addiction Clinic. :thu:

 

Let me ask you all... would you be willing to part with one of your favorite guitars???

 

God Bless you, Eric! :)

 

Peace

Thanks Bic, Base, and 57..

 

It's amazing what those went for! Wow!

Yes, Bic, if I knew it would save one life I would give up any guitar if asked, depending on the circumstances.

Once I thought I saw you, in a crowded, hazy, bar........

Yes, I would if it could benefit a good cause to the tune of half a million dollars!!!

 

But it's easy for me to say as none of my guitars are worth probably even £200 each....

I'm not sure I would auction off something for charity, because the next owner might use it for self-promotion (hello Hard Rock). I'm also not convinced of something being expensive because it was owned by someone famous.

 

I would rather organize an event where folks could donate their skills to the greater betterment. I think it also keeps the economics real. People already pay $100 a ticket to see legendary acts. I think Eric could say the ticket sales from every third show (or something like that) go straight to the charity.

 

If I were to organize and event, I would headline the charity. No one seems to want to pay much money for the exclusive purpose of hearing me play music, but I'd be happy to be a fringe benefit for someone making a donation to a legitimate cause. I don't NEED to get paid to play music.
