Another project for @guitarsforvets . This 60s era 12 string zero fret acoustic was in rough shape when she hit my bench.. But she sparkles and sings beautifully now with a deep cleaning, detailed fret dress (pits everywhere ) and a newly hand cut bone nut. With a tight setup. . Swipe for before picture .

Kevn Kinney (of @drivinncryin ), my oft-times-better half, has prints of his “glorified autographs” that are now up on my website! www.AnnaJensenArt.com (link on my homepage ) with proceeds going to two amazing causes: HOSEA HELPS ("From preventing homelessness in working families to providing emergency food for students, and from making sure that children have school supplies to delivering Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to the homes of senior citizens, we engage in a wide range of human services all year long." ) and GUITARS FOR VETS ("Veterans shouldn’t have to face the challenges of PTSD in silence or alone. Through the teamwork and camaraderie of Guitars for Vets, they can join a community where they learn to play guitar and find solace in the songs they love as well as the songs they have yet to write." ) There are two sizes to choose from with different suggested donation amounts. The smaller ones have different border options and would be fun in a group of all the same or different border colors. Have fun with it! Share, give away, etc. And THANKS!!! #drivinncryin #folkart #painting #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #kevnkinney #hoseawilliams #guitarsforvets #hoseahelps

To begin the program, I would ask that you please call 814-943-8164 extension 4558. (Mon-fri 8-4 ). Ask for Wendy. Wendy is our liaison/referral for the Guitars for Vets Altoona Chapter. There is no fee or charge for this call. It’s just the process that we use to take new guitar students into our program. Wendy will have some basic questions for you and then she will put your name on a waiting list. (We do have a waiting list but it is not very long at this time ). We ask that you commit to attending 10 guitar lessons. The lessons are one hour long and go once a week for ten weeks. Attendance is important as other veterans are interested in the program and resources are not unlimited. If you complete the 10 week instruction period you will be awarded a graduation guitar. It is our hope that you would continue to make music long after your graduation. #guitarsforvets #guitars4vets

Happy Memorial Day! Although this day is one of sadness, it is mostly one of remembrance. A day to honor those in our military service who are no longer with us. • • This is my brother, Jeremiah - a Marine Corps Vet who was killed in action in 2004. This is one of our last photos together. He was a funny guy, always always getting into trouble, being a pain in the butt, a smart guy, a kind guy and a musician just like me!! • • I recently discovered an organization called, @guitarsforvets - their mission is to use the healing power of music to help our veterans. If you’re so inclined, please check them out and see if you can pass a donation their way. I also saw that they take guitar donations! So if you’ve got a spare lying around in your garage, please consider gifting it to someone in need. 🤘🎸 ——————————————— . . . . . #memorialday #marinecorps #semperfi #siblings #veterans #musicheals #musictherapy #guitarsforvets

Today is a special day where we honor those who have died while servicing our country. We also honor those who served and returned home! ⠀ ⠀ @guitarsforvets is an amazing organization that provides music lessons and musical opportunities to veterans with PTSD. ⠀ ⠀ Because we are all trying our best to social distance. Guitars for Vets and myself have partnered up to reach out and provide an opportunity to highlight individuals who are apart of the G4V community. This was the first of many virtual photoshoots and interviews of our members. ⠀ ⠀ In the photo is @gramsngtrs who is the chapter coordinator of the guitars for vets Omaha chapter! She has an amazing heart and cares deeply for G4V!! ⠀ ⠀ Stay tuned for a blog post on my website to find out more about this amazing human and her journey through life and music!! ⠀ ⠀ Please go support guitars for vets your support can save a life!!⠀ ⠀ Have a wonderful and healthy day⠀ ⠀ - Love Neil

If you are looking for something to do today in between homeschooling the kids and wondering when the world around us will return to the way it was, I encourage you to listen to the newest podcast from @fretboardjournal in which I speak with @jasonverlinde and @tlguitars about what it was like to make, and deliver, a guitar for former US President Jimmy Carter. We talk about the wood harvested from Mr Carter’s property and a little bit about the rivalry that he and I share! @worldtree_ecotree #guitarsofinstragram #luthier #armynavy #jimmycarter #handmade #habitatforhumanity #beatnavy #guitarsforvets #veteranownedbusiness

A huge thank you to Jacques Brisson, friend and fellow luthier in Quebec who has graciously donated to my course to teach first-responders and fellow veterans to learn the art of guitar building. Why guitar building? Guitar building and woodworking in general have been proven very effective therapy modalities for helping restore a sense of purpose, pause the ruminating mind and offer an environment that can ease symptoms associated with PTSD and MDD (Major Depressive Disorders ). Whether the war is militaristic or viral in nature, it leaves people taxed emotionally, physically and mentally. When this smoke clears, many people will be in need of varying degrees of therapy - this is just one such modality. If you have a friend or loved one who is a veteran or first-responder and may be interested in learning the therapeutic art of guitar making, I’d love to get them on my list for the next available course.

@stitchedupheart released the official video for their song "Warrior" yesterday from their forthcoming record "Darkness." Frontwoman @mixiofficial had a vision for the video and directed with it Ron Thunderwood. According to Blabbermouth "This song is dedicated to the soldiers who sacrifice everything to protect the ones they love," stated Demner. "To those who have seen things they can never come back from. To those who will defend no matter what the cost." In support of the release of "Warrior", the band partnered up with Guitars For Vets, a non-profit/charity, by selling a "Warrior" t-shirt.

We are incredibly thankful for Gibson. Through a recent partnership, they have generously donated 14 Les Paul Customs, 32 Epiphone Masterbilts, and 19,000 sets of strings. Without organizations like Gibson, we would not be able to provide the healing power of music to our heroes. Thank you for support our veterans! We also want to give a special shout-out to @sullyerna from @godsmack for supporting our veterans and helping handout the donations to a few of our graduates!
