Strat Carried to Top of Mt. Everest is Being Auctioned for Charity


An Alice Cooper-signed Squier Stratocaster that made it to the summit of Mt. Everest last month is up for grabs via eBay to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Todd Pendleton, an adventurous firefighter from Scottsdale, Ariz., made the expedition with the autographed Stratocaster.

“I know carrying a guitar up to Everest sounds like a ridiculous story, but it was all done to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,” he told Arizona’s KTVK TV station. “At the time, I had dreamed of carrying a guitar to the top of Everest, thinking it would be easy. It was not! I was totally regretting my decision about halfway up. But I had made the commitment to get it to the top.”

Bidding for the signed Stratocaster is open until 8:12 p.m. PDT on June 27. Click here to bid.
