The Rescue Guitar — Latest News

It’s been a while since I updated you on the Rescue Guitar and there will be a lot of people who don’t know what it’s all about, so I thought perhaps a recap would be good.

The Rescue Guitar is a Fender Squier Telecaster  that was found abandoned in a dump and saved from destruction.

The idea is this: if the guitar can be associated with enough famous musicians, its value will grow until it’s eventually auctioned off for the highest possible price, and all the proceeds will be donated to cancer research.  The bigger the names, the more money can be raised.  Having been rescued itself, this guitar will go on to save lives.

Some very famous people have posed for a picture with the Rescue Guitar and some other very famous people have endorsed the project.

How famous?  Will Neil Young do?
