In August, Grohl released “PLAY,” a two-part mini-documentary that celebrates the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to mastering a musical instrument and culminates in a 23-minute, one-man-band instrumental song performed live by Grohl on seven different instruments. In conjunction with the project, recording studios around the country donated session time to young musicians. In support of musicians like these, Grohl is auctioning a collection of signed instruments that mirror the musical equipment used to create “PLAY.”
“When I take my kids to their music lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out. I’m inspired by watching that process,” Grohl said. “Even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out. It’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve what you’ve learned.”
Bidding for his Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar is at $3,700 as of this writing, while the Gibson Memphis Traditional ES-335 is currently at $5,300, the Fender P-Bass Elite is at $1,575, and the Gretsch G6228 Player’s Edition Duo is at $3,550.
The auction went live on Tuesday on Reverb, including several other items.
