Doner Designs - Warming Hearts with Cool Guitars

Hobby Builder with a Purpose - We Create Custom Theme Guitars for Charity Fundraising... 

Doner Designs is a part-time father-son charitable enterprise that builds and donates theme guitars to major national charities which then auction the guitars to raise funds. On average we build and donate one guitar per year. Past projects have been given to the Make-A-Wish Foundation (twice), the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the United Services Organizations (USO).  We also build guitars to test ideas, raise awareness about the causes we support and for our own personal use.  We do not accept orders or build for the purpose of selling, but from time to time we sell a personal/prototype/test/exhibition unit to make room for our next project.

Additional photos, videos and further information can be viewed on the pages and links referred to in the Site Index at left.
