2 Guitar Manufactures
(Ed. Just too cool not to list ;-)
Township Guitars are manufactured by hand to exacting musical standards. Made from selected oil cans and a combination of hard woods. The guitars are based on traditional African instruments having originated from the “ramkiekie”, a four stringed oil can guitar invented by the Khoi, when coming into contact with early European settlers. Many African musicians learned their guitar playing skills on a home made oil can guitar including Jimmy Dludlu, Sipho Gumede, Alan Kwela and many others. The Township Guitar is an electric guitar capable of taking the stage with the best.
