Dismal Ax 'Red Bird' Guitar to benefit Japan

Here's one of George Downing's new 'Red Bird' Guitars (named after our song). This is a custom order and I have an arrangement with George that part of the proceeds from the sale of any 'Red Bird' guitar is going to the Red Cross to aid Japan. George makes his creations under the name Dismal Ax
and only uses locally harvested and salvaged woods. I've designed a double cutaway version that will debut soon.
