Guitar Signed By TONY IOMMI, JIMMY PAGE, RITCHIE BLACKMORE Auctioned For $1.6 Million!

Tony Iommi (BLACK SABBATH), Jimmy Page (LED ZEPPELIN), Angus and Malcolm Young of AC/DC, Brian May (QUEEN), Ritchie Blackmore (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE), and DEF LEPPARD are among the artists that signed a guitar which was auctioned off this week for 1.6 million dollars, according to The Rock Radio.

After last year's tsunami in southeast Asia, Canadian singer Bryan Adams started getting musicians to sign the white Stratocaster in hopes of raising money for relief efforts. Just in the last year, it has been signed by nearly 20 legends, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Mark Knopfler, Ray Davies, Liam and Noel Gallagher of OASIS, Ronnie Wood, Paul McCartney, Sting, and Adams himself.

The guitar, which was donated by Fender, was auctioned off earlier this year for more than $150,000. It was re-auctioned this week and bought for more than $1.6 million. All proceeds will go towards the Reach Out To Asia Foundation.
