Tony Polecastro Becomes an Official Ambassador for Guitars For Vets
In early 2018 Tony Polecastro became an official Guitars for Vets ambassador along side Tommy Emmanuel and other acoustic guitar icons.
I’m honored to bring awareness of G4V to our growing community of 150,000+ acoustic guitar geeks who share the same values as G4V. It’s not about mastering the instrument, it’s about the healing power of music & human connection, constant progress and fun. We’re excited to support G4V through the Acoustic Life Festival, monthly donations via acousticlife.tv and direct monetary and guitar donations from individuals in our community. – Tony Polecastro
