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.

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

The world is an oyster.

Well its not like Neverland or anything. We just have horses, cows. We don\\\'t have a giraffe, we don\\\'t have a preschool group. We had some emus for a while. They were pretty cool.
