LONDON, May 25 (UPI) -- Guitar enthusiasts looking for cool, one-of-a-kind guitars get their shot at a London auction next week, and they don't even have to go to London to bid.

LiveAuctioneers.com -- the Manhattan facilitator of eBay Live Auctions -- said in a news release Friday it will donate live online bidding services for the RockCoutre guitars.

Thirty prominent names in music, fashion and design -- including Bono, Ronnie Wood, Graham Coxon, Nick Rhodes, Jennifer Lopez and Philippe Starck -- have come up with their own versions of Fender's famed Stratocaster guitar.

Proceeds from the sale of each instrument will go to the creator's charity of choice.

Sotheby's is handling the auction at Gibson Hall in London.
