While some people spend thousands of dollars to purchase a used guitar played by a famous musician, there's a way to get your hands on a piece of their instruments without spending a lot of money.
sells bracelets made from the guitar strings of big name musicians and gives the proceeds to charity.
Since the company started in 2006, the company has fashioned bracelets from the recycled strings of guitar greats such as Les Paul, Gregg Allman, Eric Clapton, James Hetfield, Joan Jett, Mark Knopfler, Ziggy Marley, John Mayer, Meatloaf, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, Nikki Sixx, Pete Townshend and dozens of others.
"People are always asking musicians to play their events for free for charity and time is money for musicians so if they can raise money for charity without putting in much of an effort, it's almost a no-brainer," said company co-founder Steve Bernstein.
The bracelets have a unisex design and range in price, depending on the artist. Each musician also chooses which charity he or she wants the money made from the bracelets donated to.
