Guitars for Vets

The Artisan Guitar Show welcomes Guitars for Vets to our 2024 show

Veterans learn to play guitar as part of the Guitars for Vets program while a service dog watches on.

Guitars for Vets is a national 501(c)3 non-profit organization with more than 100 chapters in over 40 states. Its mission is to provide guitar lesson programs to Veterans living with the challenges of PTSD and other injuries. These guitar lessons offer a unique alternative to healing – they put the power of music in the hands of heroes.

This program restores the feelings of joy and purpose that Veterans can lose after suffering traumatic experiences. Guitars for Vets has administered more than 50,000 guitar lessons and distributed more than 5,000 guitars to Veterans.

The Artisan Guitar Show is excited to sponsor a class of six veterans. To show our commitment and support, we will provide each of these students with a Martin Dreadnought, Jr. guitar purchased with the support of our friends at C.F. Martin & Co. Stop by the Guitars for Vets display during the 2024 Artisan Guitar Show to learn more about this great organization.
