A Music Man Silhouette guitar, autographed by the legendary Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, is up for auction by Ernie Ball on Ebay. Guitarist-Vocalist Keith Richards has paved the way for generations of aspiring rock and roll guitarists. Richards used a similar silhouette guitar on the Steel Wheels album and tour.

Features include:
  • Maple Neck
  • Hum-Single-Hum pickup configuration
  • 5-way pickup selector switch
  • Standard "strings-thru-the-body" bridge
  • White pickguard, volume and tone controls
  • A SKB hard-shell case

100% of the auction proceeds benefit the Casey Lee Ball Foundation. This non-profit organization works for the advancement of pediatric kidney research. Casey Lee Ball, third son of Sterling Ball, was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease at age two. At age five, while Casey and Sterling were recuperating from kidney transplant surgery, they decided to create the Casey Lee Ball Foundation. As a result of their tireless efforts over the last six years, several new medicines have made it to market in record time and are helping to reduce the side effects of kidney transplant medications. In the near future, Ernie Ball will also be auctioning a:
  • StingRay bass signed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • Silhouette baritone bass signed by the Eagles
  • Axis signed by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
