Bidding has begun in earnest in the Acoustic Guitar Auction that started Thursday, May 13. A custom National Tricone Style 4 resonator guitar from 1999 has drawn the greatest bidding activity so far, followed closely by a 1965 DiGiorgio Serie Artistica Autor 3 nylon-string. Other sought-after lots include a 1943 Martin 000-18, a 2011 Santa Cruz Firefly parlor, a 2014 Collings 02H concert, and a 1997 Gibson ES-175 hollowbody.

Acoustic Guitar donates 20% of the net auction proceeds to support guitar education in public schools and programs through the Bill Collings Memorial Fund.
