Coldplay Puts Tour Guitar Up For Auction To Aid Hurricane Sandy Victims

Chris Martin, fronter for Coldplay, has put up for auction a guitar that was used during the band's 2012 international trek. Proceeds from the auction will benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.

A post to the auction site unveiled details of the "one-of-a-kind" instrument:

"Collect a one-of-a-kind guitar played by Chris Martin during Coldplay's Mx 2012 tour. The guitar was set up and modified specifically for, and used by, Chris Martin to play 'God Put A Smile On Your Face' on tour. The guitar tech had to put the guitar back together after each show, making this guitar completely unique."

The axe is expected to pull in about $15,000, with the money going to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
