Austin City Limits celebrated four decades of live music tapings with a special anniversary show in June at the Moody Theater. Now you can own a piece of that night  — if your price is right.  

An online charity auction for an autographed Fender Stratocaster (donated by Fender) from the show opened on Tuesday morning. The signed Strat features such iconic signatures as Jeff Bridges, Sheryl Crow, Robert Earl Keen, Jimmie Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr., Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Peter Stroud, Joe Ely, Doyle Bramhall II, Brittany Howard (from Alabama Shakes) and more.

If you're ready to place your bid (the minimum is $500) head over to the auction at Charitybuzz, and know that all proceeds go towards creating more local programming via KLRU. The auction, which opened at 11 am on September 23 will close at noon on October 8. 

The two-hour 40th anniversary Austin City Limits special (featuring appearances those who signed the guitar) airs on KLRU on Friday, October 3. The new season kicks off with Beck’s ACL performance on October 4.
