From the Frank DiLeo Michael Jackson Collection, this is famed record executive Frank DiLeo's personally owned Bon Jovi band signed and inscribed guitar that was owned and played by Richie Sambora. In addition to being one of the best successful record executives in rock and roll and Michael Jackson's manager, DiLeo was also Richie Sambora's manager. The guitar has been signed and inscribed to DiLeo by the following band members in silver paint pen: Richie Sambora (who has written, "To Frank, My Godfather, Thanks Pal! Richie Sambora '07'"), Jon Von Jovi, Tico Torres and David Bryan. DiLeo, whose prolific career in the record business touched numerous artists, was best known as Michael Jackson's manager from 1984-1989, who won Michael's attention because of his pivotal work as Vice President of National Promotion at Epic Records in the extraordinarily successful marketing of "Thriller." DiLeo was also co-executive producer along with Michael for Michael's film "Moonwalker" and came back to work with Michael on his 2009 "This Is It" final concert series project that came to an abrupt end when Michael tragically died just prior to the first concert. Very good condition. Sold as is. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of provenance from the DiLeo family.
