Re: Afri-can guitars?!

These things have their own special place in guitar history!

I'd love to try one but I can't see it ever being my first choice gigging axe.

Look at the string spacing. Ewww!

Mind, if I woke up in the middle of Africa and had no access to a better guitar I'd make do with one of them!

By making one yourself? maybe.
For 2 grand? maybe not.

The mind that doesn't have access to, or indeed the money to buy expensive brand guitars . There's a lot of poor people in South Africa so they built them out of what they could.

Still, I do agree that to market these for $2k plus is a joke. My parents recently came back from a trip to South Africa and saw these for about $150. Don't know if they were the real 'afri-can' deal or not..........
