To celebrate the milestone, Fender and Hurley Guitars enlisted twenty artists, including Johnny Marr, Incubus' Brandon Boyd and Rancid's Tim Armstrong, to hand-paint custom Stratocasters. The guitars will be auctioned on eBay starting on October 22. The auctions will run through November 1.

All proceeds from the auctions will benefit Waves for Water, whose mission is to "get clean water to every single person who needs it."

A charity art show with all the guitars on display will be held on October 24 at Hurley's headquarters in Orange County, California. The exhibit will be the only chance to see the guitars in person before they are sold.

Other artists who are contributing are Ed Hardy founder Don Ed Hardy, "Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle" painter Natalia Fabia and visual artist Thomas Campbell.
