An acoustic guitar owned and played by Robert Smith, lead singer of The Cure at Bonham’s on December 12, 2013 in London, England. The guitar is offered for sale with estimates of 3,000 – 5,000 GBP. The Schecter signature RS-1000 acoustic guitar was personally donated to the Brighton based children’s charity Amaze. The guitar was used throughout the band’s 2008 World Tour and the body is signed and inscribed by Smith with the lyrics for ‘That Boy I Never Knew’, a song yet to be released. Memorabilia relating to The Cure is rarely seen on the market and a piece of such significance has never been offered at auction before. The item features in Bonhams’ Entertainment Memorabilia sale which takes place in Knightsbridge on December 18, 2013 and includes around 400 lots of music television and film history collectables.
