    I wish Ritchie would take his own words as written on the guitar and…’Keep Rockin’ …again! Nice of him to donate this item though.

    Nice iniciative..

    Blackmore’s signed guitar sell for millions ? I don’t think so.. Maybe around 250.000 US$ if the bid is well conducted. IMHO

    The most expensive guitar ever sold is a Fender Stratocaster sold for 2.7 Millions US$ .

    This guitar was sold in an auction in Qatar in 2005 to raise funds for Reach Out to Asia, a charity formed to help tsunami victims.

    The instrument is signed by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Brian May, Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend, Mark Knopfler, Ray Davis, Liam Gallagher, Ronnie Wood, Tony Iommi, Angus and Malcolm Young, Paul McCartney, Sting, Ritchie Blackmore, Def Leppard and Bryan Adams

    My final bidding was at 1.550 pounds (about 1900 euros), just a quick note; This is not the “Fender Stratocaster Ritchie Blackmore” Signature model. This is a Fender Stratocaster signed by Ritchie Blackmore.

    Congratulations to the owner and let’s hope that other musicians will follow Ritchie’s charity example !
