Gibson Guitar auction to benefit World Hunger Year at Shane Hines and the Trance performance on July 24 at Jammin' Java and Vienna, VA.

Shane Hines

Naming their EP The Glory Journal may seem brash, but Hines & Co. spill over with energy and exuberance that affirm accuracy in advertising.

It's not often that you get a chance to wrap two musical experiences into one night, support community based hunger relief and go home with a Gibson guitar.

Enter the Shane Hines and the Trance Split Personality shows on July 24, 2009 at Jammin' Java in Vienna, VA.
The night will start at 7pm with Shane Hines' acoustic side, a stripped down and intimate listening room show. Shane has been performing in the best listening rooms in the country, and now he's bringing the show to his hometown. 
Then at 10pm, he'll swing to the polar opposite end of the spectrum, trading in his acoustic guitar to shred his electric, and Shane will be joined by the full band for the well-known high-energy rock performance..
Gibson Guitar joins the program in providing a USA SG Special Faded electric guitar for auction. All proceeds from the auction will benefit World Hunger Year's Artists Against Hunger and Poverty program.
Tickets to the shows can be purchased at Jammin' Java.

About Gibson USA Special Faded Guitar
Hands down, the SG Special Faded is the best combination of features and value in Gibson's iconic SG line-up. You still get the dynamic, slim mahogany body and hair-trigger quick neck that have made the SG legendary, but without all the non-essentials. The ultra-affordable price tag on this guitar is owed to fewer coats of finish than can be found on the traditional SG Standard and SG Special. This stripped-down finishing process means that not only will you enjoy more resonance but you'll be the proud owner of an SG that looks straight out of the '60s. The SG Special Faded is uncivilized. It's fierce. And it's got to hang in your guitar rack.
