Autographed guitars to be auctioned Dec. 1 for Dio Cancer Fund

More than 100 guitars bearing the signatures of rock, pop and country stars including Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Tom Morello, the Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney will be auctioned Dec. 1 to benefit the Dio Cancer Fund established in memory of hard rock singer Ronnie James Dio.

The instruments will be previewed Nov. 19 at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, where they will be auctioned two weeks later.

Other artists who have signed donated guitars include members of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Metallica and the Alice Cooper Band. The guitar signed by Van Halen is a prototype electric made for him. The auction also includes a custom hand-carved Ronnie James Dio memorial guitar made by DBZ Guitars and an acoustic-electric guitar signed by “Twilight” film series star Robert Pattinson.

The preview will run from 3 to 5 p.m. and will be attended by Dio’s widow, Wendy Dio, and Gloria Butler, chairman of the Dio Cancer Fund, which was created after the 2010 death from cancer of Dio, the onetime lead singer of Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Dio. Some musicians who donated instruments also are expected to be on hand.

Julien’s is at 9665 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills. More details are available at Julien’s website.

$800 is cheap.. If I had the extra cash I’d give this a serious go. I’ll be interested to see what it goes for.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.
