Hormigo Cutaway Dreadnought Guitar
This is a truly special guitar as it has the looks and the tone and it has a great history! It was originally sold via an auction to raise finds and awareness for the Livestrong Foundation. At the time Lance Armstrong was still a vital part of that organization and he graciously signed the label that is now inside the guitar. All raffle tickets sold out quickly and a very happy woman from Tryon became the proud owner. Though she did not play guitar at the time she began to take lessons because of how much she treasured the instrument. Time has past and per her wishes, this guitar is now being sold to raise funds and awareness for The Foothills Humane Society.
The instrument is in pristine condition and, as you can hear, sounds wonderful!
Now, the story gets even better because Ziggy, the Lichty Guitars shop dog and our beloved pet, came to us from Foothills.
- Post Update – SOLD – 100% of the purchase price has gone to support Foothills Humane Society.
Features: Hormigo back and sides, cedar top, mahogany neck, herringbone rosette and purfling, ebony fretboard and bridge, tortoise shell-like binding
