Charity Auction for Tohoku Earthquake: Autographed Gibson ES-335 Larry Carlton Signature Model

The 12th annual Tokyo JAZZ Festival was held a couple of weeks ago starring great musicians from all over the world.
Larry Carlton, 4-times Grammy-winning Jazz guitarists, have initiated a charity auction with his Gibson ES0335 autographed by himself and actually played during the Festival.
This guitar has traveled a lot since Larry started his plan for the auction. Larry took the guitar to his favorite Jazz club in Paris, France, called “The New Morning Club.” There, he left the guitar so that famous artists who visited the club for their shows can sign it too.




After he picked up the guitar, he brought it in to Tokyo Jazz Festival and used it for his performance.
