Corey Taylor has announced a guitar auction to help raise money for Direct Relief, a non-profit organisation who are helping with the delivery of PPE and other essentials to healthcare workers on the frontlines battling the coronavirus pandemic.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman has put 13 guitars from his personal collection up on eBay – with a couple of super-limited Dave Grohl signatures, a number of beautiful acoustics, and a black SDGR bass among the instruments available to bid on. On top of that, eBay will be providing a matching donation of up to $1 million to Direct Relief's COVID-19 response effort.

"Direct Relief a non-profit doing important work by delivering personal protective equipment and other essential items to healthcare workers fighting COVID-19."
