This guitar is being sold on behalf of Rowcroft Hospice and was donated to the charity jointly by Duesenberg guitars and Dave Stewart. In the letter that accompanies this lot Stewart writes Caring for someone at the end of their life is something we all go through at one time or another and hospices like Rowcroft are a great help to patients and families in this difficult and emotional time.

Rowcroft is South Devon’s hospice, providing end of life care to over 1800 patients with life limiting illnesses, and supporting their loved ones. The current cost of services provided in the area stands at £7.5 million, over 70% of which is funded by voluntary contributions.
