Auction closes December 10th at 2PM EST
Satriani/Bonvillain Charity Axe!Â Originally a 2001Â IbanezÂ JS-1000 body and a 1998Â HoshinoÂ Anniversary Model JS neck with ebony board refinished byÂ Bonvillain Design StudioÂ and the legendaryÂ Joe Satriani. Green and purple inlays with aÂ Bonvillain Design StudioÂ plaque in neon green at the 21st fret.Â DimarzioÂ Super Distortion and Liquifire in the bridge and neck positions and new chrome hardware donated by Rich Harris atÂ Ibanez Rules. The guitar has been autographed by both artistÂ David BonvillainÂ and guitar legendÂ Joe Satriani.
BonvillainÂ shares “While a little wonky on how we have to pull it off â we wanted the charity to get the full donation amount and also wanted the buyer to get the tax donation credit. So rather than having a auction provider take a buyers fee and fee from the donation â we decided to try and host the auction ourselves and have the winning bidder donate to theÂ UCSF Benioff Childrenâs Hospital San FranciscoÂ directly. For tax purposes, we are required to set a base value which allows anything over to be tax deductible. We used a value of $1,000 based on an early 2000s Ibanez JS-1000.”
