Hear Mimi Fox Play Luis Bonfá’s ‘Gentle Rain’ on Our Custom Yamaha CPX15N

This custom 2000 Yamaha CPX15N is from Acoustic Guitar magazine’s 10th Anniversary Collection. In celebration of our 30th anniversary in 2020, we’re putting our collection up for auction from April 20 through May 10, giving you the opportunity to bid on a piece of guitar history and support guitar education at the same time.

50% of the net proceeds of this auction will be donated to the Bill Collings Memorial Fund in support of guitar education in public schools and public programs. Plus, we’ll contribute $5 to the Collings Fund in the name of every bidder, whether they win at auction or not.


The estimated value range for the Yamaha CPX15N is $4,000 to $6,000. What makes it special? The northern motif and translucent white sunburst finish and rosette depicting the never-setting northern sun; bleached sycamore back and sides complete the effect.

Check out the details and photo gallery.
