The auction on eBay was won by a mystery American music fan in Washington DC.

The money raised from the 'stars guitar' will support hospices in the North West

“I was just amazed. It was well worth getting all the autographs on the guitar and it is great news for the charity. It’s going to support hospices. I was there when everyone signed it and every legendary icon loved it. They were happy to do it."
