Not long ago, Jim D’Addario, Chairman of the Board and Chief Innovation Officer of D’Addario & Company, Inc., began to feel guilty that most of the guitars in his 50-instrument collection were being neglected. D’Addario decided to pair with Reverb to sell an initial batch of 14 of these guitars.
Among the acoustic highlights are a 1956 D’Angelico Excel, originally made for the jazz guitarist Bob Miranda, which he played with legendary singers like Tony Bennett and Nina Simone.
All proceeds will be donated to the D’Addario Foundation, a non-profit that provides support to music education programs around the country. For more on the instruments, see The Official Jim D’Addario Reverb Guitar Collection.
