Guilford Guitars Build Tribute for Fallen Air Force Airmen
Fort Worth, TX (May 28, 2012) -- Major Henry Cecil has teamed up with Louisiana Hall of Fame members Lillian Axe and luthier John Guilford to build a special model to honor eight fallen Air Force Airmen and one civilian contractor. The guitar is a special Steve Blaze Redeemer that will be auctioned to raise money for the families of the airmen.
The front of the guitar is decorated in Air Force camo with a piece of a jacket worn by Cecil during a year tour in Afghanistan. The back of the guitar is painted Air Force blue with the names of the fallen engraved.
The guitar will go on tour with Steve Blaze in the summer and fall, being played on the song "Take the Bullet," written to honor the military. A raffle began on May 23 on airforceguitar.com in conjunction with Memorial Day weekend.
The raffle will run until Veteran's Day on November 11, 2012.
