Generosity comes in many forms. One of the many reasons why Twisted Spruce is a family is because of the contributions by members of the guitar community who believe in the mission to advance new music on the guitar (by establishing collaborations between guitarists and composers) and who support the organization. Nobody contributes more each year than Wilson Burnham. He has handcrafted four guitars for the Twisted Spruce symposium and competition. Each of them have been praised for their ease of playability and beauty of sound. Thank you, Wilson, for your hard work, sweat, tears, and for this generous contribution you have made annually.
