A class in San Jose received a special gift of free guitars Friday. They were handed out to a mariachi class at Burnett Middle School.

The Mexican Heritage Foundation surprised the class of 30 with the guitars. The students had previously just practiced mariachi vocals.

They'll begin learning to play guitar immediately and will play at the Mexican Heritage Festival this summer.
