Acoustic Guitar is pleased to announce our May 13-27, 2021 auction. There’s something for everyone in this sale, from a 1943 Martin 000-18 to a custom Art Deco-inspired National Tricone Style 4 to a 1965 di Giorgio Autor 3 (like the one played by bossa nova creator Tom Jobim). You’ll also find guitars by many fine contemporary luthiers.
Buy a Guitar. Train a New Guitar Teacher.
As in our previous auction, 20% of the net proceeds from the auction will be contributed to the Bill Collings Memorial Fund. So not only can you be the proud owner of a fine guitar, you can also support guitar education in public schools and programs around the United States.
The Bill Collings Fund, established by C.F. Martin IV of the Martin Guitar Company, honors Bill Collings by training new classroom guitar teachers, introducing kindergarteners to music, and bringing guitar lessons to underserved teens around the country.
And Acoustic Guitar will contribute an additional $5 to the Collings Fund for every person who bids in the auction, regardless of whether they end up as a high bidder. So take a look at the instruments, register to bid, and help make this an event to remember.
