Thanks go out to Rob Tarulli from New City, NY for the winning and charitable bid on Chris Broderick’s Ibanez “Endgame” guitar. All proceeds go to benefit Magnolia Elementary School PTC programs.

Guitar auction winner Rob

Chris Broderick, three-time Grammy nominated guitarist for the legendary band Megadeth has donated his personal Ibanez Prestige S5470F Red Viking Electric Guitar and will autograph it for the winner!

The guitar for sale is the one pictured with Chris Broderick in the Endgame artwork. The photos of the specs on the guitar were from the Ibanez website. I just learned Chris customized the guitar with DiMarzio D Activator pickups and had the Ibanez factory remove the “tone” knob.

Below are some photos of the donated guitar:

Megadeth’s David Ellefson & Chris Broderick videos of the Jackson clinic at The Music Zoo in Roslyn, NY:

“Jason Becker has been and continues to be one of my biggest influences whether it’s on the guitar, in music, or about life in general. I can’t say enough about the man who has been such a big part of my ability in music, so hopefully these items I have given to him to auction will convey in a small way my gratitude for all he has done!”
