Green Guitars from First Act
So, I love guitars and have been trying to learn how to play them since Christmas. Yes, it is a long and gruesome process for someone who has never played a stringed instrument. But, it is fun and I dream about which electric guitar I will get when I get good enough to move up from my acoustic. Here's an option for the environmentally conscious.
(repost from DESIGNwatcher)
"The body of the guitar is crafted from Forest Stewardship Council certified wood, nearly all of the hardware and electronics are made from recycled or salvaged parts—even the exterior finish and paint were chosen for their low toxin emission. Additionally, the carbon emissions associated with electrifying the guitar for its entire lifetime will be made "carbon neutral" through renewable energy company, Native Energy. Check out Garnder's custom guitar and First Act's earth-friendly bamboo guitar ($399) right here."
