Slipknot’s Corey Taylor auctions off guitars for charity

By | Published on Tuesday 28 April 2020


Slipknot’s Corey Taylor is auctioning off thirteen of his guitars on eBay for charity. It turns out Corey Taylor owns a lot of nice guitars. Also, you probably can’t afford any of them.

All money raised in the sale will go to the charity Direct Relief, which is working to distribute personal protective equipment to healthcare workers around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the funds raised from bids on the guitars, eBay will also match the total raised by all of them up to $1 million.

Among the guitars on offer are two Gibson Memphis limited edition Dave Grohl custom models: one of only 400 produced in metallic gold and one of just 200 made in Pelham blue. Sure, Taylor had one of each. Why not? There are also various Gibson Les Pauls, a handful of acoustic guitars and a lone Ibanez bass guitar.

Each guitar will come with a case and a certificate of authenticity. Also, Taylor’s written his name on all of them.
