Simon Cowell has signed a Gibson electric guitar which is to be auctioned off to raise funds for charity.

The music mogul, who is perhaps best known as a judge on The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, was given the GibsonSG by its manufacturer.

He is planning to donate the electric guitar to Great Ormond Street Hospital, where it will be sold off to raise money for the establishment.

"I would like to thank Gibson for their generosity," Cowell commented.

He added that he is donating the guitar to Great Ormond Street Hospital to "help them in their fundraising efforts".

Cowell is currently gearing up for another series of The X Factor, the show which launched the career of artists including Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke.

This comes shortly after Gibson hailed the enduring popularity of the SG over the last five decades, describing it as its best-selling electric guitar.
