Rickenbacker created this guitar especially for Tom to sign in support of Sweet Relief, and it is truly a one-of-a-kind instrument. The exquisite details and custom finish have never appeared together on a Rickenbacker, and the vintage TV knobs, F soundhole and checkered binding were just of few of the incredible details that blew us away. On September 17th, Sweet Relief took the guitar to KAABOO in Del Mar, CA for Tom and the Heartbreakers to sign, and Tom was so impressed with the guitar that he wanted to keep it for himself! Of course he happily signed the guitar and went on to perform an awesome set, closing the night, as always, with “American Girl.”
Sweet Relief are now auctioning the guitar, as Tom intended, to raise funds for their Rob Max Elder Musicians Fund, which is named for their own recently passed Executive Director. Rob was passionate about the plight of Elder musicians in today’s landscape.
