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

The auction begins tomorrow (Oct. 6) and concludes Oct. 14. It coincides with the Adopt-A-Minefield Los Angeles Gala, hosted by Sir Paul McCartney and his wife, Heather Mills McCartney, on Oct. 15 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 and made available to bidders exclusively at www.charityfolks.com and www.gibson.com.

The Adopt-A-Minefield Los Angeles Gala 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 the supervision and direction of the artist.

In its first three years, the Adopt-A-Minefield Gala has raised over $2.3 million.
