Description

One (1) Martin Custom Acoustic Electric Guitar
1 - bottle of
ARÔME 28- year rum signed by the founder

Are you dreaming of a steel guitar engagement? Having the perfect instrument won’t instantly transform you into Keith Richards or Pete Townsend, but it might bring you closer to your goal.

C.F. Martin & Company has been a leader in the field since 1833. In the 19-century they pioneered innovations such as X-bracing, which helped pave the way for the use of steel strings on American guitars; they also implemented structural changes that survive today, such as carrying over the dovetail joint to connect the neck of the guitar to the body, which enhanced the tone. The Martin Custom Acoustic Electric Guitar is light in design, compact enough to transport easily, and will produce a stunning sound that will give you a lifetime of enjoyment. The guitar is in mint condition and comes in a custom Martin case. 

Inspired by Cuba, made in Panama and aged to perfection ARÔME 28 is a truly singular product. It displaces most of the preconceptions that consumers have about older rum: it’s not overly sweet, and it displays a stunning range of aromatics and flavor. Aged for a minimum of 28 years in barrels that were initially used to mature bourbon, it was released in limited quantities and has become increasingly more difficult to find as time goes on. In their rave review, Robb Report found “not merely scents of banana, toffee and nutmeg but also traces of old leather, coffee and black walnut.”

 

INSIDER’S INFO: Guitar is being stored at the Naples Children & Education Foundation office in Naples, Florida. Delivery or shipping outside of Naples, Florida will be at the winning bidder’s expense. The bottle of Arome rum will be shipped directly to the wining bidder.

DONORS: Karen & Bob Scott and Andrew Troyer of ARÔME Rum
