This is a very unusual collectible guitar from the family at the Ernie Ball Music Man organization. The Casey Lee Ball Foundation is a nonprofit organization where 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to pediatric kidney research. Casey Lee Ball, third son of Sterling Ball, President of Ernie Ball, Inc., was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease at age two. At age five, while Casey and Sterling were recuperating from kidney transplant surgery at UCLA, they decided to create the Casey Lee Ball Foundation. The major source of funding for the Casey Lee Ball Foundation has been the Casey Lee Ball Golf Classic, an annual charity golf tournament held with celebrity guests including Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson, Joe Pesci, Andy Garcia, John Brodie, Robert Urich, Wayne Gretzky, Christopher Guest, Scott Hamilton, Cheech Marin, Chris Myers, Meatloaf, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather, Alice Cooper, Dweezil Zappa, George Clooney, and many more. This pretty Axis Sport was done in a light Gold Metallic finish w/a comfortible maple neck w/2 powerful Humbuckers. This exact guitar was auctioned off & now being sold by its original owner. Its got its 7th Annual Casey Lee Ball Classic Golf Tournament logo on its face & many of the special guests signed this Axis guitar. Photos are posted of the event full off all the famous guests. Its near mint overall having some of the signatures faded out a bit but the ones legible are worth the price of admission for this rare opportunity. Comes w/its owners manual in its original molded hard case.
