Bonhams are to sell a one of a kind Epiphone Casino Guitar that has been signed by a host of rock legends in their Entertainment Memorabilia sale on December 15.
Funds raised will go to PUP AID. PUP AID 2010 was launched in September by Liam Gallagher, kindly offering his support to raise awareness about Puppy Farming. The guitar is estimated to sell for £3,000-4,000. And the list of signers reads like a who's-who of rock royalty...
Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Eric Clapton, Brian May (Queen), Mick Jones (The Clash) and Roger Daltrey (The Who) have all autographed the PUP AID Epiphone Casino Guitar.
Paul Weller (The Jam/Style Council) and Gary Moore (Thin Lizzy) are also among the signers.
PUP AID 2010 was the brainchild of TV Vet Marc Abraham and also the first-ever music festival and celebrity-judged dog show. It was held in Brighton, England, to raise awareness about the cruel industry of puppy farming in the UK.
Puppy farming is the mass-production of puppies purely for profit with no thought or consideration for the welfare or happiness of the pups, breeding bitches or stud-dogs. Poorly diseased pups, usually riddled with fatal infectious and congenital diseases are commonplace.
The PUP AID Epiphone Casino Guitar joins an original Jimi Hendrix guitar and Beatles lyrics in a special music and entertainment memorabilia auction at Bonhams Knightsbridge, next week - and is surely the ultimate Christmas gift for any music-loving dog owner.
Proceeds from Bonhams' auction are going to Dogs Trust, Kennel Club Charitable Trust and Oldies Club - a small charity specialising in re-homing older unwanted dogs.
