ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - An Athens charity is auctioning an electric guitar signed by members of the rock band Drive-By Truckers.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (bit.ly/1RNH8MX) online bids for the signed Gretsch 6118 guitar have reached $2,400. The auction on BiddingOwl.com ends June 26 unless a buyer meets the instant purchase price of $4,000.

The guitar was signed by Drive-By Truckers members Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley, Jay Gonzalez, Brad Morgan and Matt Patton during a February tour stop in Athens.

Proceeds of the auction will go to AthFest Educates, which gives grants to local educators who teach children art and music.

Albums by the Drive-By Truckers include the 2002 double-disc “Southern Rock Opera” and “English Oceans” from 2014.
