15: Michael Franti
Michael Franti is passionate about life, love and music. "Music is sunshine," he says. "Like sunshine, music is a powerful force that can instantly and almost chemically change your entire mood. Music gives us new energy and a stronger sense of purpose." That is why he painted this guitar for Little Kids Rock's auction - so that he can help raise money to bring the wonderful gift of music to children across the country who need it the most. Check out Michael Franti & Spearhead's new album "The Sound of Sunshine" at http://michaelfranti.com/ ***Note*** This guitar was painted with acrylic paint and clear-coated to create a one-of-a-kind, playable piece of music/art memorabilia. You are bidding on a one-of-a-kind guitar personally decorated and/or autographed by the artist. This artist-customized guitar is a modified version of the Fender® Standard Series Stratocaster®. It has been modified in that it has no pick guard, in order to maximize the artist's canvas. This guitar is one of 60 ever made by Fender® at Fender® Ensenada, the Fender® Mexico manufacturing facility. 100% of the proceeds go to Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit that restores and revitalizes music programs in underfunded public schools nationwide.
