Lou Reed's Moog Guitar On eBay


The Bob Moog Foundation has announced a once in a lifetime eBay auction to begin Monday December 7, 2009 and run through December 17, 2009. Moog Music Inc., the company which carries on the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog through its innovative instruments, is donating a Paul Vo Collector Edition Moog Guitar serial #005 (of only 300 made), signed and played by Lou Reed. Here's all the details from The Bob Moog Foundation...
The guitar will be auctioned on the Bob Moog Foundation's eBay page beginning at noon (EST) on December 7 and concluding at noon (EST) on December 17, 2009. The strikingly beautiful instrument is a maple top Tiger Eye Flame with an ash body, maple neck and ebony fret board. Reed has signed the front of the guitar; his labels for the guitar's controls remain on the instrument as well as the brackets for his guitar strap.
Lou Reed, best known as the former guitarist, vocalist and principle songwriter for the experimental rock band Velvet Underground, has enjoyed a prolific career as a solo guitarist known for the pioneering of many sound effects including distortion, high volume feedback and nonstandard tunings. His love affair with the innovative Moog Guitar began early, as he played the instrument in its prototype phase. Reed experiences the Moog Guitar for the first time in this YouTube video. Upon hearing the guitar for the first time, Reed exclaimed "This changes everything". Reed performed on the Moog Guitar on the David Lettermen Show in the fall of 2008.
Mike Adams, President of Moog Music, states "Our thanks to Lou Reed, who experienced the Moog Guitar in its earliest evolution and inspired us to continue our development efforts. Gratefully, the proceeds from this auction will support the Bob Moog Foundation. Both the Bob Moog Foundation and Moog Music serve to honor the genius of Bob Moog."
Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation acknowledges "The Bob Moog Foundation is deeply grateful for the support of Lou Reed and Moog Music. The funds raised from this auction will be of great assistance in expanding our Student Outreach Program, the program in which we bring Moog instruments in to the schools and teach children the science behind the sounds of electronic music. This program, even in its infant stages, has opened children's minds and engaged their spirits to explore the extensive sonic possibilities that Moog instruments offer."
