Reverb.com has announced (opens in new tab) an official Jason Becker gear shop – featuring six- and seven-string guitars autographed by an all-star lineup of guitar greats – in an effort to raise funds for The Jason Becker Special Needs Trust (opens in new tab).
Headlining the shop is a 'Triumphant Friends 2' Kiesel JB24 signed by every member of Metallica, Sammy Hagar, Steve Vai, Tosin Abasi, Herman Li, Steve Lukather, Alex Lee, Albert Lee, Neal Schon, Elliot Easton, Stevie Salas, Warren DeMartini, and Chris Broderick.
Additionally, the shop is offering a Joe Satriani-signed and -stage played 2004 G3 "Flame" guitar, a stage-played Nili Brosh-signed Ibanez seven-string, a PRS SE signed by Mark Tremonti, an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro signed by all of the members of Trivium, a Jackson Pro signed by Jeff Loomis, and a BC Rich sporting the autograph of Zoltan Bathory.
Reverb.com says that this batch of signed guitars will soon be joined by more signed gear, including a Paul Stanley-signed Ibanez signature.
All proceeds from the sale of the instruments will go to assisting Becker – who has battled ALS for 30 years, and recently experienced a health scare that sent him to the hospital – with his medical costs.
