The auction begins February 15th at NFL Auction

Katy Perry and the NFL have announced that the Fender guitars that Perry’s band played during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show will be auctioned off at NFL Auction to benefit Break The Cycle.

The American Standard Stratocaster, American Special Jazzmaster and ’74 American Vintage Jazz bass instruments highlight Fender’s core offering of American-made guitars built in the company’s prestigious Southern California factory. These unique guitars were hand selected for Casey Hooper, Josh Moreau and Nathan Spicer to play on the world’s biggest stage and were custom-painted to match the overall ambiance and color coordination of the live performance.

The guitars will be available on NFL Auction through February 15th.
