Cigar Box Guitars
Winston & fidel
"It's in you, and it got to come out." John Lee Hooker
Colonel Chris Hadfield visited us at Motion Gallery in Calgary, and tried out a few guitars before settling on an Alberta Red Neck, #119. Then he autographed another to be auctioned in support of The Calgary Foundation's flood relief fund. We're proud to say that guitar brought in $2,500 for the cause! Thanks to all who bid on it; your support is greatly appreciated!
