The first Paul McCartney Signature 1964 Epiphone Texan, serial No. 001, will be auctioned to benefit Adopt-A-Minefield, the landmine clearance and survivor assistance program.

The auction begins tomorrow (Oct. 6) at 8 a.m. EST and concludes Oct. 14. It coincides with the Oct. 15 Adopt-A-Minefield Los Angeles Gala, hosted by McCartney and his wife, Heather Mills McCartney at the Century City Plaza Hotel. McCartney will perform with Neil Young at the event, which will be hosted by Jay Leno.

The guitar is an exact replica of the one McCartney used to write and perform the Beatles' "Yesterday" in 1965. It will be signed by the artist and made available to bidders exclusively at Charityfolks.com and Gibson.com.

The Oct. 15 benefit will feature a live auction of the second Signature 1964 Epiphone Texan (serial No. 002). Both guitars are part of the first of a run of 40 hand-made Epiphones produced in the United States by Gibson Guitar Corp. under McCartney's supervision.
