U2’s Edge Gives Favorite Guitar to Charity

The EdgeThe Edge, of the band U2, wanted to donate something “really significant” to a charity auction raising money for musicians to replace instruments lost or damaged during Hurricane Katrina. He decided to offer his favorite guitar which he’s played throughout his career with U2. Two hundred items have been given to the Music Rising organization — which The Edge co-founded — to benefit their April auction. Up for bid alongside the 1975 Gibson Les Paul, will be a saxophone signed by President Bill Clinton and an Elvis Presley recording contract. (BBC)
