Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is auctioning off 13 of his personal guitars to benefit Direct Relief's COVID-19 efforts.

The Grammy Award-winner's collection includes one electric bass, eight electric guitars and four acoustic guitars, each of which has been played and signed by Taylor himself.

The collection is headlined by two Dave Grohl signature Gibson semi-hollow bodies and several Gibson Les Pauls.

Each guitar comes with a case to protect it and a certificate of authenticity to validate it. The bidding closes next Thursday, May 7. You can view the collection on eBay here.

In addition to Taylor's auction, eBay has pledged to match donations to Direct Relief, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million through May 31.

Direct Relief is working with public health authorities throughout the U.S. to provide essential PPE and medical items to frontline healthcare workers.
