I was lucky enough to attend the 2nd night of the Ben Harper Acoustic show in Wellington and get VIP tickets in the 2nd row.

I took a pickguard from a guitar in the hopes that I might be able to meet Ben after the show and get the pickguard signed. Near the top of the pickguard are some small splotches of gold paint, from when Ben got gold paint on his hand from the paint pen. I can easily remove this for the winner. I left it on as I think it adds character and is really part of the story.

Also included in the auction is my ticket, my VIP pass on the lanyard, a limited edition poster (which I would recommend framing). If wanted, I can provide photos and videos from the 2nd/1st row.

Turns out after the show I was able to say a quick hello and get the guitar pickguard signed (only 3 people got stuff signed. A ticket, an arm and my guitar pickguard). I felt very very lucky as he doesn't usually do post show signings.

Anyway this guitar has hung on the wall in my jam room for a couple months, but with a baby on the way and some house repairs needed it unfortunately has to go, along with a few other things.

The guitar's true branding is unknown. I purchased it on trademe as a well-known branded guitar. When I received it I believed it wasnt authentic and stated so the first time I listed this Unfortunately I have had to remove this branding and relist this (due to trademe advising it was breaching copyright laws - even though I got it from trademe with the branding. Bummer). However, I was able to remove the branding well enough that it can be re-applied. The branding won't be able to be included in this auction.
