Legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul has donated one of his personal custom Gibson Les Paul model guitars to raise funds for the Uniformed Firefighters Association Widows and Children Fund. Peter Ortel, a retired New York City fireman from Rescue 3, painted a poignant September 11 scene on the guitar. Beginning today, Wednesday, December 11, through Saturday, December 21, this guitar will be up for bid on eBay. All proceeds will be donated to the FDNY fund.
A photo of the Les Paul Firefighter guitar can we seen on the Gibson Website at www.gibson.com/whatsnew/pressrelease/2002/sept9b.html. To bid, visit eBay.com.
