People all over the US are going crazy for the college basketball tournament, just as they do every this time every year, and a clever music company has found a new way to capitalize on the thriving sports memorabilia market.
College Guitars is launching on April 1, with instruments and accessories emblazoned with the licensed logos for some of the more popular teams. Branded items for 9 schools will be available next month, with more to be added regularly. Picks, straps and guitars are offered for Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, West Virginia LSU, Ohio State, Tennessee, Kentucky and Louisville.
These guitars are full-sized instruments with a painted spruce top and mahogany back and sides. A retail price of $299.95 is listed, but they are offered online for $199.95.
One can imagine that any of these items might cause a ruckus at your next jam session, but you got to represent, right?
