For many guitarists, there's no electric more desirable than a Gibson ES-335. So how about one signed by a glittering array of stars including Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Paul Weller and the late John Martyn?

Well now you have the chance to own just that, and thanks to a generous donation by Gibson Guitar, all the money raised will go to the War Child charity, supporting work with children affected by war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda.

Before we give you the link to the auction, here's a list of some of the ever-so-slightly famous musicians who have messed up the guitar's paintwork with their spidery handwriting:

Jimmy Page
John Paul Jones
John Fogerty
John Martyn
Paul Weller
Last Shadow Puppets
My Bloody Valentine
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
Graham Coxon

The auction ends on 22 February at midday GMT. Click here to see the eBay listing.
