Thought his might be of interest

Over the last three years, Twisted Sister rhythm guitarist John French Segall commissioned Gretsch and a dozen other guitar makers to custom design a lineup of 25 exquisite “pinkburst” guitars, basses and amplifiers for the Pinkburst Project, which will benefit research into uveitis, a disease responsible for 10 percent of blindness in the United States. French’s 17-year-old daughter Samantha was diagnosed with the disease at age 6.

The finished collection is featured in Premier Guitar’s February issue although the custom-built Gretsch G6120 has the privilege of making the cover.



The guitars will be auctioned off on May 1 during the Skinner Fine Musical Instruments Auction in Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to the auction, Twisted Sister will also throw a concert, “The Pinkburst Project: An Evening with Twisted Sister and Friends benefiting the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation,” on Friday, April 29 at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square

They don't look quite as horrible as I expected, more of a faded red which is not too bad.

Worthy cause too.
