Mojo auctions off signed Les Paul for War Child

Music magazine Mojo is auctioning a Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Goldtop guitar signed by a host of rock's biggest names to raise money for the charity War Child.

The auction follows the recent 2010 Mojo Honours list ceremony in London for which War Child were the chosen charity.

Folk-rock hero Richard Thompson, winner of this year's Les Paul Award, was the first to sign the guitar with other awards attendees leaving their mark too. Along with Thompson's, names on the guitar include: Jimmy Page, Duane Eddy, Richard Hawley, Bill Nelson, Blur bassist Alex James and Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh.

At the time of writing the bidding stands at just over £2150, if we had the money spare we'd certainly snap it up. If you win please bring the guitar into the MusicRadar office so we can bask in its glory…
