Bid on Mark Morton Guitar Auction ...

Heavy metal band Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton offers autographed guitar and strings for auction to benefit DM research. Heavy metal fans now have a chance to own a piece of musical history, and help find a cure for myotonic dystrophy (DM).

Mark Morton, lead guitarist for the American heavy metal band Lamb of God, has donated the custom-designed and autographed Jackson guitar from his personal collection, and the strings and LOG guitar picks he used to record four of the songs from the band’s album Wrath, to the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF). All proceeds from the sale of the guitar will support research into treatments and a cure for this devastating disorder. This auction will be run through eBay MissionFish. Bidding begins at 5:00 PM PST on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 and ends at 5:00 PM PST on Saturday, February 4, 2012

Three-time Grammy-nominated Lamb of God has been helping MDF raise funds for DM research since 2009, when Randy Blythe (lead vocals) donated his Grammy nomination medallion as an auction item. Randy and Mark support MDF in honor of their friend Todd Stone, an MDF board member who has two young sons who are living with the disorder. In the last decade, great success has been achieved in DM research and potential breakthroughs are on the horizon. Your successful bid for this one-of-a-kind guitar will help make those breakthroughs a reality.
