Preston Thompson Scholarship Fund

We wanted to create something for the future of Thompson guitars in Preston’s honor. His excitement for young players was a deciding factor for us to create a fund to get a Thompson guitar in the talented hands of a young musician with a long career ahead of themselves.

We build higher-end handcrafted guitars, which are usually out of reach of a young player just starting out their career.  Many times Preston wished we could have generously gifted a guitar.  We hope the scholarship fund will be at a level end of 2024 to start a guitar for someone deserving.

Here is a little video of him talking about him passing on his skills to the shop crew and supporting the next generation of players.  Preston was proud of all our featured players even if very early on in their careers.
