What better way to cap off a nice day on the hill than making your way to a night-cap jam session with a Marker flying V guitar. That's right, the makers of those bindings on your skis now have their hands in the music biz. OK, fine, Gibson actually made the guitar. But Marker is in on the deal that's raising money for the family of popular big-mountain skier Shane McConkey--a legendary powderhound that died in a ski accident last year.

Here's what Marker had to say about the axe:
The Marker guitar is a Flying V model in Gold Bullion featuring Marker's "Rule the Mountain" logo. The aggressive design of the Flying V fits well with Marker's popularity in the youth & freeride binding markets. Marker is proud to be associated with Gibson in this effort. Their craftsmanship has long set the benchmark in quality; partnering with them on this special one-of-a-kind instrument is very exciting. Both Marker and Gibson are especially interested in helping this great cause.
You've got until the end of the month to place your bid.
