You know all those giant guitars that double as art that you see around the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Sure you do. It's hard to miss the freakin' things.

A similar group to the one behind those is launching a new set of artsy guitars — but these are mortal size and playable.

Michael Stanley — radio host and frontman for the massively popular Michael Stanley Band back in the day — has just been named celebrity co-chairman of the group that spearheads the guitars.

Cleveland Rocks! (yes, that's the organization's name) has tapped Stanley to help raise funds for the project. He'll also "provide creative input."

A bunch of new artists were just chosen to put their spin on the guitars, which will showcase at the Rock Hall before being auctioned off in June.

The funds will benefit local non-profits the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, the Music Settlement and the Rock Hall. We assume Stanley will be at the "gala auction event." Yippee.
