Somalia Aid – Old Black pick-guard for bidding

SDomalia aid with an Old Black plate

Albert auctions a handmade brass pick-guard for a Gibson Les Paul “Old Black” style guitar, top-chromed, like Neil has.

The reason? To help the starving kids in Somalia and neighbouring regions.

The plate is massive chromed brass (250 grams) and has all feed-throughs for the original screw drillings and the humbuckers.

This pick-guard is unique and serves a good purpose, like Love! Many things are running afoul in the world today, but helping the starving kids in Africa is at least far from dogmas.

End of bidding is this Sunday, high noon, European Summer Time (CEST) = GMT+2h.

Thank you, Albert.

thanks to Albert. We raised in an individual action about 1000 € in total. Thimk about that!? Military expense is at least a factor 1.000.000.000 per day.

The world is an oyster.

Oh, absolutely. I read a review of my record and someone said, \"She sounds like Lucinda Williams fronting Crazy Horse.\" I thought, wow, I never really thought that Neil Young was a big influence, but I guess in some way he\'s a subconscious one. It\'s a huge compliment. Not only is he a great musician and artist, but I have a lot of respect for the way he leads his life and takes a stand on things that are personally important to him.
