Slipknot’s frontman Corey Taylor auctions his 13 guitars from his collection to raise funds for Direct Relief’s COVID-19 response efforts.
You can check the sale now on eBay and will run through May 7th at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
The sale features a mix of electric guitars, acoustic guitars, and bass guitars, all signed by Taylor. Auction’s highlights include a gold metallic Gibson Memphis Dave Grohl DG-335 (one of just 400 in the world), a Gold Top Gibson Classic Les Paul, a tan Fender acoustic guitar, a pearl blue Gibson Dave Grohl Signature (one of just 200) and a black SDGR bass. Each of these instruments comes with a case and a certificate of authenticity.
All the proceeds from the auction will go to Direct Relief’s COVID-19 response efforts, while eBay will provide a “matching donation” of up to $1 million to the organization. Direct Relief is a non-profit organization that aids to deliver personal protective equipment and other essential items to the front line health workers during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Slipknot was forced to cancel their anticipated Asian tour because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, the band’s Knotfest Roadshow tour is still scheduled to kick-off on May 30th in Syracuse, New York.
