The guitars were provided by the Sylvia and William Gretsch Memorial Foundation, whose purpose is to make community life better by establishing a commitment towards community service. The foundation’s prerequisite is that the guitars be embellished by artists prior to being auctioned. The guitars pictured are from a previous auction.
