Peavey has teamed with Ted Nugent and Artists For Autism to
promote a one-of-a-kind Peavey guitar auction to benefit Autism
Speaks and Project Lifesaver International. The auction is live on
eBay until Thursday, April 5.
Artist John Rios of GrafixJam and Rich Wright of Wrighteous
Jewelry collaborated on the custom design for the Peavey® Rotor®
electric guitar, which features a tribal design created especially
for this instrument, as well as a sterling silver tailpiece and
sterling silver "bear claw" volume and tone controls. Ted Nugent
played and signed the guitar on March 2, 2012.
"The Nugent band is very proud that we can donate dozens and
dozens of guitars to meaningful children's and military charities
across the land each year," said Nugent. "This very special,
one-of-a-kind Peavey guitar is going for yet another very important
charity-to help fight the fight against autism and assist those
battling this terrible disease. Peavey and the Nugent tribe are
American Blood Brothers for those in need."
Artists For Autism will donate the proceeds from this auction to
Autism Speaks and Project Lifesaver International, which will use
the funds to not only create awareness about autism, but also to
provide equipment and rapid response services to children with
autism who wander, which will reduce the potential for serious
injury and save lives.
Founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Hartley Peavey said,
"We're happy to be able to contribute to autism awareness and
autism response services. This is a fine musical instrument with
high-quality custom treatments that make it a must-have for
collectors and players."
