I’ve posted about this before here. The guitar (Voyageur) now has the book and the website – a very interesting concept turned into reality. Wonder what we might use to build a similar guitar here in the UK? (Answers in a comment, please!)
Voyageur itself is made from 63 pieces of Canadian history and heritage representing many different cultures, communities and characters from all across the country. A further handful of elements adorn the strap and the interior of the guitar-case. These materials were gathered primarily by Taylor over a two year period thanks to the generosity of individuals, corporations and public institutions in every part of the country. All materials were shipped to Nova Scotia and the guitar was crafted by luthier George Rizsanyi near Pinehurst between April and June of 2006 with inlay work and other assistance by Sara Nasr.
