Post Marty Friedman to sell his guitars for Japanese help
Translated and amended from google translate, apologies for any inaccuracy, but the sentiment remains:

Marty Friedman:
We have sincere sympathy for the victims and everyone in the massive earthquake. Words can't express how sad the news is to see such a massive earthquakes. I think I have a very deep affinity for Japan. My dreams came true after arriving in Japan. The beauty of the Japanese forces, and the Japanese have impressed me with their compassion at all times. Your greatness starts now for the future of Japan, you want strength and compassion in mind. I think the Japanese have solidarity with the world. You also need the power of solidarity of all one person, especially now. Bright future for everyone and work hard together for a healthy future.



Marty Friedman:
Pictures, descriptions and how to bid will all be up on my US website as well as my Japanese website within 2-3 days. I have NEVER sold ANY of my guitars before, this is the only way these guitars will leave my possession. I urge you to please spread the word and most of all BID HIGH. You will be putting a huge deposit in the `karma bank` as and have some pretty cool guitars to show for it. DO IT!

This is definetly one of the coolest things a musician has ever done.

He is showing all his gratitude to Japan, for letting him "live the ultimate rock star life".

Damn, now I wish i had some serious cash to bid on one of those sexy kellys...

I ordered one of the old Megadeth picks. Pretty cool they included those. 20 bucks BIN ain't too bad, and I'd been wanting to do SOMETHING within my means.

Amazing sales.

But the prices have not been as high as I expected. The RIP Kelly went for around U$8,000 and the Carvin for around 7k...

I thought they were going to sell for more...

Bad economic times might have something to do with it too. I imagine in 2007 it would have gotten double.

That's still a lot of money!

But yeah, they were some legendary instruments. It's like Paul selling his original PGM 300 (with fixed bridge). But Megadeth is WAY bigger than PG.

Here is a guy from EPS Message Board, I talked to him via email, he is the lucky owner of Marty's IMO 2nd coolest Kelly after the RIP one. This one was #05 in the auction

http://bbs.espguitars.com/showthread.php?t=58598

Here is another #07, the one with the Japanese sticker and synth PU, it looks like he wants to re-sell it…not quite sure…

http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/guitar ... edman.html

That’s all I have for now. Please be sure to post a link if you find any new ones!

The first ones got a Khaler Flyer! It's funny how Marty kept everything original on his guitars, but Paul on the other hand got rid of the original parts and the guitars!!! :o

Nice Kelly!
A fixed bridge would sound WAY better.
