::$100 Guitar Project
The $100 Guitar Project was started on October 20, 2010 when Nick Didkovsky and Chuck O'Meara bought a $100 electric guitar from Elderly Instruments. In 2 years and 30,000 miles of travel throughout the USA and Europe, the guitar passed through the hands of over 65 players, each of whom recorded a piece with it, signed it and then passed it on to the next player. The result was a 2 CD album released on Bridge Records, Inc. in January 2013 (BRIDGE 9381A/B). Most of the album proceeds go to CARE, an organization fighting global poverty.
The guitar has been identified as a FujiGen Gakki EJ-2 (with a missing neck pickup). These guitars were made in Japan from 1962-65.
