G&L Guitars' Phyllis Fender Brings Smiles to Children Everywhere

Proceeds From the Sale of G&L's Limited Edition Phyllis Model: 'Blondie'

Benefit The Smile Train

FULLERTON, Calif., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- As G&L Guitars' honorary chairperson, Phyllis Fender presented a $20,000 check on Saturday to The Smile Train, the world's leading charity providing free cleft surgery to afflicted children in poor countries around the world. The check represents proceeds from the sale of the G&L Phyllis "Blondie" guitar.

The limited edition "Blondie" was created by the G&L Custom Creations Department as a tribute to the woman who promised Leo Fender that she would do her best to ensure he would remain proud of G&L Guitars. To honor Phyllis, Leo, and all the musicians that love Leo's legacy, the "Blondie," Leo's loving nickname for Phyllis, was created. Every detail of the guitar is a nod to Phyllis, from the Pearl pickguard and tuning pegs to the matching pearl rear cover, the "Blondie" reflects Phyllis' own unique blend of elegance and grace. Only 100 of these collector's edition guitars were crafted.

"Leo's instruments bring smiles to musicians, and The Smile Train brings smiles to children," said Phyllis Fender. "For children afflicted with a cleft lip and palate, The Smile Train is a gift from God, an opportunity for them to live full and normal lives."

The Smile Train has provided free cleft surgeries to over 250,000 children worldwide. With a unique non-profit model, The Smile Train is able to ensure that 100% of all donations go towards the program, with 0% overhead. It costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes to give a child a new smile, and a new life.

"Thanks to Phyllis Fender and the people of G&L Guitars and BBE Sound, Inc., The Smile Train is simultaneously tapping into musician's love of sharing their music and their desire to make a difference," said Joe Lamond, president and CEO for NAMM, the international music products association. "This is an exciting way to make a world of difference, one smile at a time." Lamond accepted the check on behalf of The Smile Train.
