YOU can own a guitar signed by one of the country’s top rock stars.

Sandiway Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are looking to raise money by selling a piece of music memorabilia.

The instrument in question is a one-of-a-kind Fender Dreadnought guitar signed by Courteeners frontman Liam Fray, who is friends with a parent at the school.

Fray, from Middleton in Greater Manchester, founded the band back in 2006 and writes all their songs.

He signed the unique guitar before his sold-out solo performance at Manchester’s Albert Hall on November 15, 2023.

A prize draw is being held to find a new owner for the instrument, with all the money raised going to Sandiway Primary School.

“Seize the chance to claim an extraordinary piece of musical history – a one-of-a-kind Fender acoustic guitar autographed by the renowned Courteeners singer-songwriter Liam Fray,” said a spokesperson for Sandiway PTA.

“This exceptional instrument bears the signature of Liam, personally inscribed with the heartfelt words, ‘Lots of Love, Liam Fray.’

“This is a fantastic prize for any music fan in your life. The perfect addition to any Courteeners fan's collection, this masterpiece promises to be the ultimate gift.

“This stunning Fender Dreadnought body is adorned in a captivating black and sunburst finish with a mahogany neck, back, and sides, coupled with a walnut bridge and fingerboard.”

They added: “What's more, your bid isn't just for a remarkable guitar – it's a chance to make a difference.
