This one-of-a-kind handmade masterpiece was created by Hank Teuton of Baruch Guitars, a guitar luthier located in Montgomery, Alabama. Made from cocobolo wood on the back and sides and a bear claw grain Sitka spruce top, this guitar also features a specially carved anchor and cross shaped ebony bridge. Ebony, mahogany, spruce, and olive woods can be found throughout the guitar, creating a unique sound and skillful design. A guitar of this craftsmanship cannot be duplicated in a factory setting, making this an instrument made for a true music fan.

About the Maker

Hank Teuton is a former officer in the United States Coast Guard. After his retirement in 2004, he began thinking about his next steps. His late wife planted the seed and led him to guitar making. Hank apprenticed under a Louisiana musician for 3 years before coming to Montgomery to transfer the old baggage house of the Montgomery Union Station. He is now known as a luthier, or a person who builds stringed instruments, and apprentices others in guitar-making. He named his business Baruch Guitars. "Baruch" means blessed in Hebrew.

George Gruhn of Gruhn Guitars in Nashville appraised this guitar at $15,000.

*You do not have to be present to win. The guitar drawdown is limited to 500 tickets.
