Iron Maiden Expensive Guitar

I had a story on an Iron Maiden charity auction.  The Guitar was a Les Paul Black beauty with Gold hardware signed by all of Iron Maiden. 
It was for Childline (
and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy (

Watch the video of the story below.

Update on the video.  The guitar cost $1,300 new.  Initially the the Guitar was at £56K and the a week later it went to £120K.  The very next the bid was down to £16,000.  The other bids were fake.

The guitar finally sold at under £17,000.  It was then announced that this bid was also fake and the guitar was not sold at all.  The guitar was reauctioned from Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th February.  They stated that bidding on it was a contract to buy.
It finally went for £2,525.00 to trooper799 .  Or US$3,900 or 2,900 euro.  Hell of comedown from the expected price.

A Flight 666 platinum disc and a band-signed Flight 666 poster also raised over £2700 for Childline and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.  These auctions went without a hitch.

Rod Smallwood also contributed to the charities by doing a sponsored cycle of Egpyt and raised money on
He raised a massive £77,300 and you can still give money there now.
Everything went well except for the guitar.

Back today

Back today from my trip.  I was in Poland in Europe for a few days.  Fairly quiet, was visiting family.   Didn't get a chance to play any guitar music for a few days so missed that. 

Also haven't wrote any new material while I was there but I did  read a few books and jotted down some ideas.  So watch out, I'll posting some stuff tomorrow and in the next few days.

More about this Guitar blog

I would like to tell you a little more about and why I have created this blog and what I hope to achieve.

About me, I love rock music and it is a such huge section of my life and my identity.  I also play guitar.  I began playing rock guitar music because I wanted to study and understand the music I listened to.  I also understand that it can be very difficult to learn to play rock guitar.  It was a struggle when I started playing myself.

I do have a guitar website and have written and posted other guitar content for other sites around the net.  I hope this is the site that will bond and glue it all together.  I intend using this site to keep you up to date on my guitar activies and other guitar news.  So I hope you will follow me on that journey. 

I am abroad till next week so my next update will be on Sunday or so.

Thanks, till next time,
