Artisan Guitar Show continues its tradition of giving back to the community – No Strings Attached

The Artisan Guitar Show has developed a tradition of giving back to the community, and this spirit of generosity in the guitar community continues into 2024. The April event celebrates this spirit of giving through the support of charitable organizations, such as Four Diamonds – Conquering Childhood Cancer and Guitars for Vets, as well as the annual Student Outreach Breakfast.

The Artisan Guitar Show, in partnership with luthier Scott Leavitt, is pleased to announce its support of Four Diamonds, whose mission is to conquer childhood cancer. The guitar community is thrilled to present $10,000 from individual donors in support of Four Diamonds – For The Kids®. This contribution underscores its commitment to the well-being and care of kids facing childhood cancer. On Saturday evening of the show, the Scott Leavitt Four Diamonds Guitar will be unveiled, and $10,000 will be presented directly to Four Diamonds.

The Artisan Guitar Show welcomes Guitars for Vets to its 2024 show and is excited to sponsor a class of six veterans. To show its commitment and support to these veterans, the show will provide each of these students who complete an eight-week instructional course with a Martin Dreadnought, Jr. guitar. Guitars for Vets will be displayed on the show floor during the 2024 Artisan Guitar Show to share with attendees the vital work of this great organization. Guitars For Vets (G4V) is a 501c (3) non-profit organization ( whose mission is to enhance the lives of injured and ailing veterans through the healing power of music.

The Artisan Guitar Show Student Outreach Breakfast is one of the many ways the Artisan Guitar Show gives back to the guitar community. The Student Outreach Breakfast focuses on adolescent through college-aged guitar students who are best described as serious students. Invitations to this educational event are extended through respected regional guitar instructors and related music professionals. Twenty-five local students are provided with free tickets to the show and a great breakfast, but most importantly, they have an unparalleled educational opportunity as guests of the show.
