Bono's Fender, Customised and Up For Auction
Bono's Fender guitar, customised with his own illustrations for Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf', is to go under the hammer this week to raise funds for the Irish Hospice Foundation
In 2003 Bono painted a series of illustrations to accompany a special fund-raising edition of Prokofiev's classic tale, which also featured Gavin Friday's narration and the musical direction of Maurice Seezer.
Now one of Bono's Fender guitars has been illustrated with his paintings - and signed - and this unique piece will be up for bids in the Rock Couture Charity Auction at the Gibson Hall in London on Thursday - and online through eBay.co.uk
