Taylor Swift Set to Auction Guitar for COVID-19 Relief

Taylor Swift's 2018 Gibson acoustic guitar is set to be be auctioned off to help raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts. 

The 30-year-old megastar has signed and dated the instrument, which she played 'Betty' on during her Academy of Country Music Awards performance last month in September.

The guitar is expected to fetch up to $40,000, and will come with the case, strap and five customised guitar picks for Taylor's albums reputation and Lover.

Also going under the hammer in the online ‘NASHVILLE: An Auction To Benefit ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund’, is the guitar Bradley Cooper used in the 2018 remake of 'A Star Is Born,' which saw him star alongside Lady Gaga.

It was previously announced that Dolly Parton's four-string dulcimer, which is covered in Swarovski crystals, will also be part of the sale, which takes place between Oct. 15 - 29, 2020.

Parton said: "Seeing my country music community suffer due to the pandemic has broken my heart.

"It was important to donate the dulcimer that was designed for my 50th Opry Anniversary so we can raise awareness and much needed funds to keep these folks on their feet before we can open the doors to our stages once again."
