The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame will open an official Reverb store on Wednesday (18 August), listing autographed guitars from its past ceremonies along with rare photographs from rock history.
Over the years, artists signed instruments backstage at the Rock Hall’s ceremonies to help the museum raise funds. These count a Gibson Les Paul Signature “T” signed by Don Everly, as well as an ES-335 signed by Chuck Berry and all the performers at his 2012 American Music Masters ceremony, from Ernie Isley to Lemmy Kilmister.
Other significant autographed guitars on sale include a Les Paul Studio signed by The Moody Blues, a ‘67 Flying V signed by My Chemical Romance and a Les Paul Jr. signed by the Rock Hall’s 2009 inductees – including Metallica, Ronnie Wood and Jeff Beck.

The store will also list limited-edition photographs of Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Albert King and Pete Townshend taken by late Rolling Stone photographer Baron Wolman.
Proceeds from the sale go to support the Rock Hall’s non-profit music education programs and its archival efforts. The Cleveland, Ohio museum exhibits a number of legendary instruments from Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” guitar to Les Paul’s original “Clunker” hollowbody.
