On August 30, 2014, an epic gathering of Guitar Gods took place at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA, supporting Jason Becker at the third “Not Dead Yet” benefit concert. At the event, Stephen C., a mutual friend of Jason and Joe Bonamassa, presented Jason with a Gibson USA Les Paul Studio from Joe’s personal collection. Jason decided to finally let this guitar go to another collector and fellow Bonamassa fan to raise funds for The Jason Becker Special Needs Trust.
Karen and Rob M., long-time Super Fans of Jason and the Blues Rock Titan, have added this gorgeous autographed guitar to their museum-quality philanthropic guitar/music collection. Stephen C. and Jason’s new Web/Social Media Assistant, Colleen, personally delivered the guitar on Jason’s behalf on October 23, 2020.

These generous donations from Joe, Karen, and Rob provided $20,000 of lifesaving medical care to Jason. Talk about some seriously cool Mojo going out into the universe!
Thank you so much, Joe Bonamassa, for giving me this beautiful guitar! When I get better, we have to jam on some Clapton. You are such a fantastic player.
Robert and Karen, you are so good to me. I am grateful to be your friend. You guys are very inspiring to me. I can’t wait to hang out.
#Thankful and #Inspired
