Exclusive Sir Paul McCartney signed guitar up for auction

Posted on 28th May 2012

We are thrilled that Sir Paul McCartney, a long-time supporter of Nordoff Robbins, has kindly donated an exclusive signed Hofner bass violin guitar for auction.

Sir Paul McCartney Signed GuitarWhilst performing with The Beatles, the Hofner bass became Sir Paul McCartney's signature instrument. This exceptionally rare piece of music memorabilia is a unique piece and has been generously donated by Sir Paul for auction at the charity's annual Silver Clef Awards, the aim being to raise vital funds for our work transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults through music. 

The guitar can be viewed between 8th  - 12th June at Christie's Auction House in South Kensington and will be auctioned at the star-studded awards ceremony on Friday 29th June 2012, at the London Hilton, Park Lane. Bidding can be made on the day by telephone or in-person. 

If you are interested in bidding please contact Rachel Walker by email or on 020 7428 2753.
