Acoustic Guitar Raffle
A hand built steel string acoustic guitar has been kindly donated by TEES life member Barry Dobson. As a club fundraiser, this guitar is being raffled - tickets are $1 each or 7 for $5 and are available from club committee members, or click here to buy online. The draw will be in December. The guitar comes with a hard carry case and a strap. Barry built the guitar himself, and its quality is certified in the following testimonial written by musician Kevin Ging:
This guitar has been built from American Sitka Spruce and Queensland Maple. The combination of these timbers, expertly crafted into the instrument, provides the guitarist with a uniquely responsive and playable instrument. It has a defined clarity across the frequency spectrum delivering a mellow sound supported on colourful harmonies. The luthier's expertise and experience is immediately obvious in the instrument's beautiful presentation. Attention has been given to each and every component, necessary for the guitarist to coax from this instrument the very best of acoustic sounds available. Thanks to the crafter, the instrument's overall detailed finish provides the owner with a guitar that can take pride of place amongst the very best of musical instruments, giving pleasure for years to come.
