Silent Hill Fans! You’re bidding on an extremely special guitar. This Yamaha APX-15FM acoustic electric guitar was purchased by Akira Yamaoka, producer and composer of the Silent Hill series of games, shortly before he began work on the first Silent Hill game. Akira composed the first soundtrack on this guitar, and then used it to compose every Silent Hill soundtrack he worked on thereafter. The SOUL of Silent Hill resides within this guitar. There’s a high possibility that it’s haunted!

The guitar also comes with two effects amps used while making the game soundtracks; a Line 6 FB4 and a Line 6 POD. Akira says that using these amps you can recreate any sound from the Silent Hill series!

This guitar was also used by Akira at the Video Games Live series of concerts!

When we asked Akira if he was willing to put his Silent Hill ‘mojo’ up for auction, he replied that it was a small thing compared to the losses the people of Touhoku suffered due to the earthquakes and tsunamis.


This auction ends April 5 at 05:10:36 PDT with all proceeds benefitting the American Red Cross. As of this post, the price is up to about $500! Even if you don't have the money (or like Yamaoka), if you have e-bay, no harm in going in to drive up the price for a good cause...!

I'll only bid if he played the Contra: Shattered Soldier soundtrack on it, too.

2 seconds after posting that message Silent Evil bought the guitar. :P

Seriously, that's cool. Good to know it's for helping the victims and not for self-gain (even if it was I bet Yamaoka doesn't need it, he haves many "worshippers").
Wish I had the cash. Well done for the lucky fella that manages to get it. And good luck Japan.

I'm glad that teh money went to a good cause, but I was expecting it to hit a little higher.

Well...Akira got his use out of it, and some fan somewhere is very happy. So all's well that ends well....I suppose.
