Katrina: MSNBC auctions off autographed guitar

To raise additional funds for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort, is holding an exclusive online auction of a unique Gibson guitar that was autographed by all performers and presenters during Friday night's live benefit concert on NBC...

The autographed instrument is a Les Paul Standard with a 1960’s-style neck. The guitar was donated by Nashville-based Gibson USA, and is valued at $3,248 without the autographs.

MSNBC's auction will conclude on Friday, Sept. 9, at 8 p.m. ET. (MSNBC is a joint venture between NBC and Microsoft.) Proceeds will go to the American Red Cross, which has been organizing relief efforts in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and other affected areas.

The link also contains video clips from the concert.
