eBay Auction for Jason Becker

I will say that although I usually avoid wearing tour merchandise to avoid drawing attention to myself in public, that tour jacket is one I did occasionally wear.

Jason Becker has long been an incredible inspiration for all, musicians and non-musicians alike. The documentary about him, Not Dead Yet, is a must see that fully captures his sense of class, deep thinking and even humor in the face of challenges unimaginable to the rest of us. It is an honor to contribute to the Jason Becker auction. – Alex Skolnick (Alex Skolnick Trio/Testament)

Chris Broderick, three-time Grammy nominated guitarist for the legendary band Megadeth has donated his personal Ibanez Prestige S5470F Red Viking Electric Guitar and will autograph it for the winner!

The guitar for sale is the one pictured with Chris Broderick in the Endgame artwork. The photos of the specs on the guitar were from the Ibanez website. I just learned Chris customized the guitar with DiMarzio D Activator pickups and had the Ibanez factory remove the “tone” knob.

Below are some photos of the donated guitar:
