First Townshend Guitar Auctioned

A guitar Pete Townshend played as a youngster will help bring care to young people suffering from cancer.  The instrument, a 1936 Radiotone cello guitar, which belonged to one of the future Who member's uncles, brought a top bid of close to $11,000 during an auction Wednesday (12/15).  Proceeds from the sale of the guitar have been donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.  The sale for a good cause is not the first for the instrument.  Townshend sold the guitar to raise money for a charity three years ago.
