The Cure Auctioning Guitar for West Memphis Three


The Cure's Robert Smith specially designed an acoustic guitar that will aid the legal proceedings of three wrongly-accused men.

Another musician has decided to lend a hand on the ongoing case of West Memphis Three. Robert Smith and his band The Cure donated a signed guitar which will be auctioned so that money from its sale can benefit the legal proceedings.

The guitar that is up for bidding is a Schecter RS-1000 acoustic that is personally designed by Smith and signed by the four members of the band. The specifications are "maple body with spruce top, maple and rosewood neck and specially designed white pearl moon and star inlays".

It was used by the band during studio sessions this year and has both Cure logo design and "Free the West Memphis Three" inscribed on it.

"Cases like the West Memphis Three's are a blemish to our justice system," said Anje Vela, president of Music4Life. "No innocent man or woman should be left to rot in prison without recourse, just because they lack the financial resources for a fair fight. Skeleton Key Auctions is grateful for bands such as The Cure who have generously donated to this cause."

Auction is opened at $999 starting from today, December 11 to December 25 through SkeletonKeyAuctions.

The West Memphis Three are three men accused of murdering three young boys in the West Memphis area in 1993, one have been sentenced in a death row while the other two are awaiting trials behind bars. Several people including celebrities such as Winona Ryder, Metallica, and Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines believe that they are innocent.
