RUSH fans are going to get a chance to own a piece of memorabilia from Geddy Lee; a one-of-a-kind, autographed Geddy Lee signature Fender Jazz bass guitar. Children’s Charity Lonny’s Smile (LonnysSmile.org) presents an evening of music and a live auction on Thursday, June 20th at 8:00pm EST at the Horseshoe Tavern in downtown Toronto.
Proceeds will benefit Camp Oki (www.campoki.ca), a free weeklong camp for children from Quebec and Ontario who suffer from heart defects and require implanted pacemakers or defibrillators (ICDs).
Lee has personally donated this signature Fender Jazz bass guitar for the auction (see below) and will autograph it for the winning bidder with a personalized message of their choosing. The bass has been personally set-up to Geddy’s live performance specifications by his bass tech, Skully, with a set of ‘live Rush performance-played’ Rotosound strings. The bass features a pearlized pickguard custom-engraved and hand-painted with the Oki logo by artist James Hogg, who has created the alchemy symbol pickguards on Geddy’s Time Machine and Clockwork Angels tour instruments.
