Singer/songwriter Janis Ian is selling her custom D’Aquisto guitar, Spring Song, to raise money for the D’Addario Foundation. The guitar, which is being brokered by Rudy’s Music, New York City, is the only flat-top made by the late John D’Aquisto in its body shape; it has a 15″ spruce top along with maple back, sides, and neck. The build began in 1978 and concluded in ’81, and Ian used the guitar to record 13 albums and on several tours.

The D’Addario Foundation is a non-profit grant-making organization that provides support to sustainable music instruction programs in communities and schools. For more, contact Rudy or Gordon at Rudy’s Music, (212) 625-2557, e-mail, and visit
