For every $25k we earn in this giveaway, we can build one school in an under-served community in Ghana, Guatemala, or Laos.
How It Works
Pencils of Promise is known as a school building organization that provides access to education, but we are evolving into a learning organization focused on quality education outcomes. With our dynamic approach to ensure quality education through our programs, we are reshaping the landscape of education in the developing world.
Today, PoP works in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua and has broken ground on over 400 pre and primary schools in remote and under-served regions. Each school was made possible by a person, a family or a company united by the goal of creating a better world through education.
We at SBL decided to partner with Pencils of Promise to help give more people access to the gift of education.
For every $25k we raise in donations, POP can build one school.
What We’re Giving Away
This Mako Elite epitomizes the kind of bespoke design that Alpher Instruments are renowned for. The body is made from black limba with a bog oak top that’s been carbon-dated to 3500BC! The bocote fingerboard and Nordstrand pickups will give you heaps of stage presence at a gig, and a clear, distinctive bass sound that really cuts through.
A Jazz Bass with attitude or the ultimate in rock ‘n’ roll sophistication? Handcrafted by Mike Lull and his team of skilled luthiers in Bellevue, WA, this modern interpretation of the classic Leo Fender design takes the build and playability to a whole new level. The M5 could comfortably sit in with any genre from up-front pop or jazz to reggae and funk.
Super lightweight and hand-crafted by Roger Sadowsky and his team, the Sadowsky NYC Deluxe features a chambered alder body with 4A flame maple top. Testimony to these instruments’ class is the list of top players who’ve commissioned one over the years, including Will Lee, Jason Newsted, Tal Wilkenfeld and Marcus Miller to name a few.
Scott’s personal bass and one of only two ever built to this specification by Tom Stenback! Few bass builders these days succeed in combining such a much-loved classic with truly stunning workmanship, but we’re looking at an instrument that’s nigh-on perfect.
If you’re looking for the ultimate custom built Jazz-style 5-string then the Xotic XJ series should definitely be on your wish list. Featuring selected tone woods, exquisite pickups and unparalleled versatility these basses make for an uncompromising approach to a classic design. Or you could just want one because they’re cool and look the shizzle!
And That's Not All....
