Harlow guitar to be raffled for Humane Society

Do you love resonator guitars, or have a fondness for furry friends? Maybe both?

Frank Harlow has donated one of his jumbo cherry resonator guitars to Ohio’s Fayette County Humane Society, which is being raffled as a fundraiser. All proceeds from the raffle will be used to care for abused, neglected, injured and abandoned domestic animals.

Tickets are being offered for sale online. Only 500 of the $20 chances will be available.

The guitar in question is a Harlow squareneck, made with 60 year old, air-dried cherry wood for the body, and a curly maple neck. The board is ebony and the guitar is adorned with pearl binding. It will be delivered to the winner in a hard shell case.

Estimated value for this beautiful instrument is $4,000.

The drawing will take place in early May, but with only 500 tickets available, it may be best to move quickly if you would like to have a shot at getting this guitar.
