(Sacramento, CA) - RONZWORLD will join The Music Experience this weekend for the highly anticipated Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK festival on October 22nd and 23rd at Sacramento’s Discovery Park. The continued partnership between RONZWORLD and The Music Experience follows a successful initial collaboration at ROCK ALLEGIANCE, also a part of the Danny Wimmer Presents festival portfolio.
RONZWORLD will again feature a showcase of hand painted guitars within The Music Experience footprint, with all guitars available for purchase. In addition, festival goers can look forward to a variety of new and unique engagements and entertainment.
Bryce VanHoosen, guitarist for the heavy metal band SPELLCASTER PDX, will join RONZWORLD on Saturday to give live performances playing his RONZWORLD custom painted Charvel Model 3 “The VVITCH,”and to jam with consumers and aspiring musicians alike.
In a new partnership with PRS Guitars, Ron Williams, founder and award-winning artist of RONZWORLD, will be hand-painting two AFTERSHOCK-themed guitars from the brand live on-site; festival attendees can watch the originally designed custom art come to life.
“I’m really looking forward to painting these guitars live,” says Ron. “When someone sees a photo of a RONZWORLD painted guitar, or even has a chance to see my work in person, there’s a lot left to the imagination in terms of the artistic process. I’m excited to show fans, musicians and colleagues what really goes into the work.”
Once complete, the custom-painted AFTERSHOCK guitars will be auctioned off in support of Take Me Home Animal Rescue, a not for profit, volunteer based foundation dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals since 2001.
Additionally, two ESP LTD guitars with RONZWORLD custom paint jobs will be displayed on the Keep Golf Metal Mini Course, a putt putt course presented by The Music Experience, where festival attendees can break from the shows to play a game of 9-hole mini golf.
Commissioned specially for Keep Golf Metal, these guitars feature one-of-a-kind, hand painted, original RONZWORLD designs that reflect the collision of the Rock N Roll and the golf worlds. The guitars have been named “Master Of Putters” and “Holy Driver”.
"The first time I saw some of Ron’s guitars, they literally stopped me in my tracks,” says Mark “Squiggy” DiGiacomo, founder of The Music Experience. “I walked over and noticed the detail and the uniqueness of the guitars. When I found out they were hand painted and designed by Ron, I knew right there, people need to experience these guitars. It’s so hard to stand out in the guitar space in 2016, however Ron has figured out a way to cut through the noise and make a remarkable and compelling product. I am honored to have him as a part of The Music Experience.”
RONZWORLD Guitars is the result of award-winning artist Ron Williams’ endeavor to combine his love of music with his artistic talent. Until recently, his art has been commissioned by private clientele. Now, he is bringing his talent to the music industry and guitar enthusiasts through his original designs with custom painted guitars. Ron personally designs and paints each instrument, with art that is directly hand painted on to the guitar bodies. No stickers, printed graphics, or wraps of any kind are used in these original, one-of-a-kind creations. Ron's mission is simple: to create instruments as unique as the musicians who play them.

About Take Me Home Animal Rescue:
Take Me Home is a not for profit, volunteer based foundation that has been saving the lives of homeless animals since 2001. Many families living in low-income areas cannot afford medical care, basic vaccinations, or spay/neuter surgeries for their companion animals. The donations raised help us to fund mobile veterinary hospitals to travel into these under-served areas to provide free spay and neuter, vaccinations, microchipping and administer medical care for animals in desperate need. Take Me Home also supports local animal charities. Come by the booth to help out our furry friends by buying a shirt, signed merchandise, and entering a raffle. Danny Wimmer, Founder, DWP, said, "DWP is proud to support various charities, giving them a national platform to promote their messages. We are particularly fond of Take Me Home, which advocates for animal adoption. I hope everyone stops by their booth and supports their fundraising efforts to help animals in need."
