Taylor Swift is All for the Hall!
Auction Ends February 27, 2010 at 12:00 a.m.
Taylor Swift surprised not only the sold-out crowd at Nashville's Sommet Center when she announced she would donate her guitar for auction, to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. She also surprised and delighted the Museum staff and its supporters with her generous gift. Performing during the star-packed We're All for the Hall benefit hosted by Keith Urban, Swift kept her donation a secret until after she performed her hit "Fifteen" on the acoustic instrument. Before handing it to a stage assistant, she announced she would give it to the Museum, adding to the generosity she showed by performing at the benefit concert. She signed the guitar, which featured a large number 13 affixed to the body (Taylor's lucky number). As it turns out, the concert also took place on October 13.
This Taylor model 655ce twelve string guitar was made in the year 2009. Serial number 20090129113. This guitar is in exceptionally fine condition with virtually no playing wear.
