More than 30 custom-painted EVH Wolfgang electric guitars are up for auction as part of ArtWalk @ Liberty Station, San Diego’s annual fine arts exhibition.

The guitars were designed by several well-known local San Diego artists, including Bronle Crosby, Jeremy Sicile-Kira, Ellen Dieter, Grant Pecoff and Cheryl Sorg, as well as musician Michael Franti.

The art guitar auction benefits ArtReach San Diego, a nonprofit organization aimed at increasing equity in visual arts education in K-8 schools throughout San Diego County by delivering free or low cost workshops to schools that have no other resources for art.

Bidding is open through November 8, and bids start at just $600 for each guitar.

You can view a selection of the 30 models below – work began on the artwork in December of 2019, but the guitars have taken on a new poignancy in the wake of Eddie Van Halen's death last month.
