Gibson has donated the instruments to raise funds for the War Child organisation, which works with young people in wartorn countries.
A Gibson Les Paul was signed by the array of stars attending this year's Mojo Awards in London, including Yoko Ono, Jeff Beck, Paul Weller and Joe Brown.
Bernard Butler, Johnny Marr and Seasick Steve also wrote their names on the electric guitar, as did Scott Gorham of Thin Lizzy, Elbow and ZZ Top rocker Billy Gibbons.
