The Q Magazine Christmas auction for WaterAid is back, and we're thrilled to have a whole host of prints – not to mention a Gibson guitar – signed by some of the music industry's biggest stars up for grabs.

The auction, which launched on eBay at 9pm on Thursday 27 November, includes a series of 25th anniversary Xperia Access Q Award prints signed by some of the UK's favourite musicians, from Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini and the Kaiser Chief's Ricky Wilson to Dizzee Rascal, Sam Smith and Wretch 32.

Also open to bids is a limited-edition Gibson guitar, autographed by some of the country's leading guitarists including Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Serge (Kasabian), James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) and Carl Barat (The Libertines).

The auction will run until 9pm on Sunday 7 December, with every penny raised going towards our work, transforming lives in some of the world's poorest communities though access to clean water and safe toilets. Bid for your favourite items on eBay >
