ACT OF DEFIANCE Guitarist CHRIS BRODERICK Auctioning Signature Jackson Guitar; All Profits To Aid Former NEVERMORE Drummer's Wife In Cancer Battle

Guitarist Chris Broderick (Act Of Defiance, ex-Megadeth) has launched a new guitar auction on eBay with the following message to those interested in placing a bid:

“I am selling one of my own Jackson CB-6 signature USA 6 string guitars! All profit will go to Van and Dori Williams (Ghost Ship Octavius, ex-Nevermore) who are still dealing with all of the expenses of their fight with cancer. I have played it across the world with Megadeth and it does have some wear due to me thrashing around the globe with it (see pictures) but plays and sounds great. I will sign it where the winning bidder would like which would make a great collectable item in anyone’s guitar collection. There is only a couple of weeks left until Christmas so pick this great guitar up and remember that it’s to help Van and Dori with their fight against cancer. Thanks so much.”

Check out the auction and place your bid here. The guitar can be seen and heard below.

Act Of Defiance will close out 2015 supporting Killswitch Engage on a handful of holiday shows at the end of December. This will wrap up what has been a landmark year for the band; which saw them release their debut album, Birth And The Burial. The record has been celebrated by fans and critics alike as an essential release for thrash and heavy metal fateful, and saw them on a headlining tour this fall supporting the album. Dates for the Killswitch Engage shows can be found below.
