Cheap Trick Guitarist Rick Nielsen and The Burpee Museum of Natural History Launched Rick’s Picks: Rick Nielsen’s Lifelong Affair with Guitar’s and Music on August 11th, 2012. AXE HEAVEN has worked with Rick over the years on various miniature guitars, but this year we finally finished the officially licensed Rick Nielsen Five-neck checkered miniature guitar replica. Rick signed a number of the miniature guitars for the opening night and all proceeds will be going to the Burpee Museum.

We have worked on samples for this project for a number of years with Rick finally approving them with his blessing. We asked Dan Roszkowski a close friend of Ricks if he liked the finished five-neck mini this time and he said “Rick loves the final product and wouldn’t have signed them if he didn’t.”. At AXE HEAVEN we make every mini guitar by hand and take pride in making a product that so many people connect with and love. We love guitars. It’s our passion.
