About HandPlayed
HandPlayed is a collaborative project between Austin-based custom guitar shop Moniker Guitars and 12 Austin artists. Two months ago, we began approaching these artists with a simple request... “paint, design, draw, engrave, customize or do whatever it is you do incredibly well, on one of our guitars.”


These guitars are now up for auction here. Proceeds benefit the Austin Music Foundation.

About Austin Music Foundation

The Austin Music Foundation (AMF) is a 501c3 nonprofit that provides free business education for Austin’s musicians and the music industry. AMF’s number of clients has increased nearly 300% since opening the Creative Media Center two years ago and needs to expand!



Fortunately, AMF has obtained a 15 year rent free lease at South Shore District, East Austin’s newest luxury apartment and mixed-use complex, located on East Riverside. The new South Shore location will be the new home for AMF's Creative Media Center (CMC), providing intimate work sessions with experts in the music industry. AMF will also utilize the new space to enhance its Music Industry Collaborative (MIC), Leaders in Austin Music (LIAM) and other programs.



AMF is asking its supporters to invest in Austin Music and help fund the cost of the building/finish out on the new building. This is a huge opportunity for AMF’s growth and ability to continue to serve musicians and enhance Austin’s music-driven economy for years to come!
