Celebrated bluegrass artist, Charlie Sizemore is set to auction an acoustic, dreadnaught Blueridge B-40 guitar with a Golden Gate hardshell case on EBAY from September 15 thru September 25, 2009.Â The guitar is autographed by country and bluegrass music superstars and legends, including Kenny Chesney and Ralph Stanley. Authentication of the autographs will be provided to the successful bidder.
All proceeds go to fund scholarships at Big Sandy Community and TechnicalÂ College in Prestonsburg, KY.Â Charlie Sizemore will announce the winning bidder on September 26, 2009 at the annual benefit concert for the college held at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, KY.
I have played a Blueridge guitarÂ for the past couple of years – it wasn’t loaned or given to me. I play it becauseÂ it’s a great guitar.Â Â So whoever gets this one will not only get a superior instrument and aÂ collector’s dream,Â they willÂ also be helping students in EasternÂ Kentucky attend college who otherwise may not have this opportunity.Â Good luck and thanks for your support – Charlie Sizemore.
