Collectors of U2 signed memorabilia know how rare a signed U2 guitar is - the band rarely signs guitars, andwhen they do, they often raise a large amount of money for great causes - including a signed guitar that recently raised $240,000!


The members of U2 have graciously signed a guitar for Rock For Kids - a Chicago charity that provides free year-round music lessons to underprivilegedchildren.


The Squirer Strat guitar was signed on March 10, 2009 at Metro Chicago when the venue hosted rock legends U2 for night two of a radio event called "U2Three Nights". For one special night, U2 turned Metro into a radio studio with a live audience of fans to promote their album "No Line On TheHorizon". During the event, all four members of U2 generously agreed to sign a Fender Squire guitar to be auctioned with the proceeds benefitting Rock ForKids, a Chicago based non-profit that provides free professional music classes for children who would otherwise not be able to afford them.
