London: Rocker Iggy Pop has designed a guitar for an auction next month to raise money to help children and young people in areas of armed conflict.

'Lust for Life' hitmaker has named his guitar 'Soulman'. Besides him, Michael Stipe and Matt Bellamy have also designed guitars for charity, reportedly.

"Soulman goin' 110/ coloured dots signify the end/ Soulman sings a soulful song/ clear and simple, deep and long," he said.

'Eurythmics' star Dave Stewart, former 'Cure' guitarist Pearl Thompson, film directors Gus Van Sant and Sam Taylor-Johnson and comic book artist Steve McNiven have also crafted custom Carparelli instruments for the auction.

Former REM frontman Michael Stipe's six-stringed instrument has been named 'Radiant Guitar' and the 'Nightswimming' singer said he was honoured to be asked to submit a design. The auction will take place at Bonhams New York on November 9.
