Hey everyone! As you know since I started college at the New England Conservatory, I've been borrowing guitars from my dad, and my teachers. Up to date, all I have is a $300 Yamaha from GuitarCenter. You may ask, why do you need a better one? In a nutshell, you just can't bring a Prius to the Indy 500 or a Nascar race. Plus, guitars are relatively cheap when compared to other instruments such as flutes and violins (which can go in the millions).
I've contacted a wonderful luthier from Montreal that I've met from the Boston GuitarFest to construct my guitar. But for him to get started, I need to come up with a 3rd of the price for a deposit to show him I'm serious, so that's where you come in!
The guitar I'm going for will cost $6,450. It'll be a cedar guitar with tasmanian blackwood. It's a gorgeous combination. I have just raised the amount for my first deposit. I won't need another $2,000 until April, and then another $2,000 in June after that. Please consider making a donation for a guitar I need to further my career, and know that I highly appreciate your generosity and love.
Thanks! Feel free to contact me at anytime!
