someone of you participants will be gifted this lovely guitar,
on Monday 19th July 2010:

FENDER CS 1951 NoCaster Relic, in Vintage Blonde
AA Neck
6105 frets
9.5" radius
6.98 lbs

this guitar is presented "as-new";
it is, imo, a killer sounding, feeling & looking guitar.
it comes with both the vintage case (never used, still in wrapping), and the very high-quality travel case.
all of the original so-called "case candy" is included.
it is certainly of both playable & collectible quality.
really; it's killer.

i will post at least a clip or 2
of me playing the guitar, here, within the next few days.

all proceeds will go directly to the bassist, composer & sculptor Mick Karn & his family,
in order to help defray their extreme medical costs (for stage IV cancer),
their travel costs & to support the family during their crisis period.

{in regards to mick's condition, more info is available, here (http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=729652).}

the donation minimum is USD $100.

to participate, please email me, here;
mssr.poseur@gmail.com
the subject line of the email MUST read, only:
MK
i will respond personally, w/simple instructions
for your inclusion.

someone's gonna love this guitar,
for sure.....
and every donation will be doing a wonderful & humane thing, imo.

as well:
i will be selling-off another of my guitars,
100% of which will be donated to the Mick Karn Appeal.

David thank you for your good work. To all, your local radio station may be able to bring attention to this auction and the donations possible on the Karn website. I wrote to Janice Long on the BBC and asked her to mention it on her show.
