'American Sniper' Guitar Being Auctioned to Raise Money for Vets
The man who killed Usama bin Laden, former Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill, appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" to explain how a one-of-a-kind guitar honors the legacy of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle.
The Chris Kyle Commemorative Les Paul Standard Special guitar will be auctioned off to raise money for a charity that Kyle helped found, Guardian For Heroes, which aims to restore hope, renew spirits and replenish energy for combat veterans transitioning to post-military life.
O'Neill explained that he has an old friend named Tim Montana who's a recording artist in Nashville. Montana teamed up with people at Gibson to create the Les Paul-inspired guitar.
O'Neill revealed that the guitar's design features the skull logo that Kyle's SEAL Team 3 used during tours in Iraq.
"It's really cool. The volume knobs are actually made out of two pieces of spent shells, one out of a .350 Winchester magnum and one from a .338," O'Neill explained.
"It's just a really cool guitar, and they're going to donate it with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Guardian For Heroes."
