I'll make a long story short here, seeing as how I tell it every time I play a show with one of these guitars…

Of course, I must include "Bad Motor Scooter" in my set as it's my signature slide riff I created long ago and still very much enjoy playing. In order to do so I needed a slide guitar for this song… I decided to donate one guitar at each show to the most needy local charity…

This could only have happened with a team of good people behind me and supporting the cause.

A huge thank you to my friend Dwight Deveraux at Tone Pros! Dwight helped provide said instruments, with his signature hardware and bridge system, etc. installed, including adjusting them for my specific tuning, action, you know… an "all – around setup" for yours truly… Go Dwight!

That being established, I then called another old friend Dean Markley at Dean Markley Strings (best strings in the world!) and asked if he could get onboard with providing Helix HD strings for these instruments… "Ask and you will receive!" Of course he was into it, he's a great guy!

So there we have it: a Ronnie Montrose autographed guitar for charity at every show. Also, as the auctions actually happen and end, pictures on this page of the auction winners along with the specific charity are listed here:
