Reuben Cox, owner of the Old Style guitar shop in Los Angeles, donated a Gibson CJ-165 guitar and spent five months getting it signed for Planned Parenthood. This is also connected to the 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood project, which is a new 7-inch box set with 100% of the proceeds being donated to Planned Parenthood. The project shared a funny video that featured St. Vincent and John Legend practicing a cover of Minnie Riperton‘s 1975 classic “Lovin’ You” when comedian Zach Galifianakis showed up to give notes. The box set also features Björk, CHVRCHES, Bon Iver, Feist, Elliott Smith, Sharon Van Etten, Sleater-Kinney, Tig Notaro, Matt Berninger and Bryce Dessner of The National, Foo Fighters, Mitski, and others.
