GUITAR TO BE AUCTIONED AT PLAYBOY MANSION!



A Dean ML, hand-painted by Victoria Fuller, one of Playboy's most popular Playmates, will be auctioned off May 16 at the PLAYBOY MANSION'S STARS AND STRIPES 09 event to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.

Victoria made history by being the first and only artist to ever receive a licensing contract from Playboy that allows her to use the famous trademark Rabbit Head Playboy and Bunny Costume in her paintings.



Dean Guitars is extremely honored to collaborate with Victoria and Playboy to offer this fully playable, one-of-a-kind "Six-String Masterpiece" in support of the brave men and woman of our armed forces. For event info check out http://www.starsandstripes09.com/
