In the late evening on Saturday, June 20, AthFest, Inc., will place a Brian Setzer model Gretsch Nashville hollow-body electric guitar, complete with a custom hard shell case and signed by all the members of Widespread Panic, on eBay to be sold to the highest bidder. The online auction will end in the late evening of Tuesday, June 30th, 2009.

This guitar was donated to AthFest, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, by the Gretsch Foundation. The guitar was originally built in 2000 and has been held in the Gretsch Foundation's collection. Prices on current Gretsch Nashville models start at $4,100.00.

The proceeds from the sale of the guitar will be used to fund AthFest AfterSchool, an educational outreach division of AthFest with a mission to educate young people about music and arts. The program brings musicians and music business leaders into local schools to make presentations to classes and to mentor those who are interested in music careers.
