September 11th 2001 was a day that changed the world. For the many loving people who call this planet home, their response was, “How can I help?” Clint Black called and asked us to join with him in providing assistance. Together we decided it was the families who had lost ones so dear that needed to know the world is still a caring and warm place. He wanted us to make him two American Flag, Hollow Drop Tops. One would become his main stage guitar, demonstrating undying support for America, and its identical twin would be auctioned on eBay with the proceeds going to this worthy cause. Clint came over for a visit while these unique instruments were in process and signed the backs of the guitars to make them just that much more special.

Next week we will give you the expanded version of the story and show you more exclusive pictures.

For now we will provide a few hyperlinks so you can enjoy the whole event. If you are feeling magnanimous go ahead and participate in the eBay “Auction for America” with the knowledge that sharing your good fortune will provide other human beings with a renewed sense of hope—and it is hope that leads to all things greater.

Clint’s web site tells more about the event this way.
