Robert Smith of The Cure is putting a unique Guild S-200 T-Bird guitar customised by Gorillaz up for auction to raise money for EarthPercent, a climate charity founded by Brian Eno.

Later this month a one-of-one Guild S-200 T-Bird guitar owned by The Cure's Robert Smith and customised by Gorillaz co-founders Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn is going up for auction. The unique guitar is expected to fetch between £5,000-7,000 at auction, and all proceeds from the sale will go to Brian Eno's climate charity EarthPercent.

Smith first debuted the guitar in August 2021 during a free Gorillaz show for NHS workers at London's O2 Arena, which also marked the reopening of the O2 Arena following the pandemic.

Last week The Cure debuted two new tracks at their European tour opener in Latvia titled "Alone" and "Endsong".

Robert Smith's guitar customised by Gorillaz will go up for auction on 20 October. Visit for more information.
