Updated: John McLaughlin to Auction PRS Double Neck Guitar for Charity
The custom double neck guitar made for John McLaughlin by Paul Reed Smith Guitars, used by John on the Meeting of the Spirits tour, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with the auction starting today and running until December 10. All proceeds will benefit Music Heals, providing therapy for children and adults in Ramallah. Here is a message from John:
For my farewell tour of the US, Paul Reed Smith built me the guitar of my dreams. It is hand made and integrates everything I need in a guitar. It is a magnificent instrument of great intrinsic value, and after my final and farewell tour of America, it will become priceless to me. It is for this reason I wish to auction it at the end of my tour, to raise money for the people who are healing through music, traumatized children and adults, in Palestine. I again visited Palestine in mid October to see the situation, and unfortunately, it has deteriorated. There is acute need for support for this NGO. They are running out of funds, and the wonderful work they are doing will cease without additional support. Even if you have no desire for a guitar, you can always make a donation at the following website, no matter how small it may be, it will be received with profound gratitude. https://igg.me/at/kqzWVIWvyps Children are the future of our world, and those born in Palestine suffer for no reason…
