Our May 13-27, 2021 auction included something for everyone, 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). There were also guitars by many fine contemporary luthiers.

20% of the net proceeds from the auction are contributed to the Bill Collings Memorial Fund. The Bill Collings Fund, initially funded 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 contributes 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.
