The Difference Maker

I believe in giving and helping out whenever I can.  I've been fortunate enough to get to know the guys from Needtobreathe and have worked with them on charity events before. They host a charity golf and auction event in Charleston that benefits One World Health, an organization dedicated to taking medical care to parts of the world that need it most.  This year I was asked to create a guitar to be auctioned off at the event, and I worked with Bo and Bear Rinehart to design something inspired by the cover art of their last album, Rivers in the Wasteland.  It was auctioned with a signed vinyl copy of Rivers in the Wasteland as well as a tour-used Needtobreathe hard case.  The guitar far surpassed my expectations and sold for $31,000, and the auction raised over $160,000 total.

Here are the specs:

  • 25.5" scale
  • Alder body with mesquite top
  • Chechen rosewood neck and fret board
  • P90 pickups with custom aged covers
  • Wilkinson vintage split-shaft tuners
  • Tailpiece from 1960s Harmony guitar
  • CTS pots
  • Switchcraft jack
  • CRL 3-way switch
