Les Paul

A Gibson Guitartown London Charity Auction was held at the IndigO2 in 2008. The special charity auction event streamed online live around the world, raised over 200,000 pounds from the sale of the 62 hand-painted and signed Gibson guitars. The star attraction of the night was a 10 foot tall hand-painted Gibson Les Paul replica guitar signed by Sir Paul McCartney, which was auctioned off for 60,000 pounds. Sir Paul McCartney said, "I'm really amazed and very happy that the guitar went for so much and for such a great cause."
