Legendary Star Wars creator, George Lucas, is honored by a Gibson Les Paul with a distinctive image of a Lightsaber-wielding Yoda. This one-of-a-kind axe joins others designed by the likes of Robot Chicken creator Seth Green and Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee.

The auction takes place on February 28th at the historic Phoenix theatre – Guitar Gala in Petaluma. For Skywalker-militants unable to make the trip to California, fear not: you’ll be able to bid online.

There’ll be 20 guitars up for grabs, all of which were donated by Gibson and customized by luminaries of varying fame. As well as the aforementioned three designers, others include Devo’s Frank Schubert and Primus’s Les Claypool.

All proceeds from the 20 auctioned Gibson guitars go to the free after-school program at the Phoenix Theatre, to aid the social development of young people. So, as always, dig-extra-deep. It’s for a good cause.

You can check out the other unique designs when they are unveiled on the Pheonix’s official site. In the meantime, you can see a whole bunch of new guitars from this year’s NAMM show here at GEAR-VAULT.
