15 Songs for 15 Backers

15 SONGS FOR 15 BACKERS

That's right! The first 15 people to donate today will each get an individualized, personalized song written about them and performed by Musicwood Producer Josh Granger on his very own Martin guitar!!

We've only got one day left for the Musicwood campaign! So if you wanted to donate, now is the time to do it!

What could it sound like? Well, have a look below and get a taste as Josh improvised a song last week about our recent trip to Martin Guitars in Pennsylvania. He'd just driven for four hours, so not bad. Maybe it was knowing that he'd finished the drive and was about to go for a beer, or just the great day we had at Martin that made him burst into song, but he's always tinkering on his Martin guitar. 

And we promise that your song — unlike that one — will not include robots in it.

(Unless you specifically want robots in it.)

And just to be clear, at Martin Guitars it's mainly PEOPLE who build the guitars, Josh just loves robots.

So get in there and be one of the next 15 backers. Become immortalized in song.

Only 1 day left!!!!

    All the above (except original art), AND a Gibson Melody Maker Dual Pickup guitar, which was very generously donated to us by Gibson USA. It was discontinued in 2008, and according to wikipedia, "is now considered a collectors item on online auction sites." Nice! (shipping not included)...
