Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor has announced a special guitar auction with eBay for Charity to benefit Direct Relief in support of their COVID-19 response efforts. The auction is live now at ebay.com/coreytaylor and is set to run through Thursday, May 7th, at 4:00 p.m. PST.
The singer handpicked 13 guitars from his personal collection and signed them for fans to bid on. Among the electric, acoustic and bass guitars, highlights include Taylor's gold metallic Gibson Memphis Dave Grohl DG-335 #237 of only 400 in perfect condition, a Gold Top Gibson Classic Les Paul, a tan Fender Acoustic, a pearl blue Gibson Dave Grohl Signature #87 out of only 200, a black SDGR Bass, and more. Every guitar comes with a case and a certificate of authenticity.
All proceeds from the auction will go to Direct Relief — less shipping and processing fees. In addition, as part of eBay's response to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, from now through May 31st, eBay will match dollar for dollar, up to $1 million, when you support Direct Relief.
Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide PPE and essential medical items to health workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
