Get Your Dream Guitar AND Change A Life

You’ll Love Having An Amazing Guitar With An Incredible Story

Imagine a guitar that stuns every sound engineer and causes other musicians to stop and ask ‘Wow, that sounds amazing, what are you playing?’
Then imagine you can tell them how your Guitar was hand-made in Uganda, and that it was part of providing ongoing income for 18 Ugandan Families. You top it all off by highlighting how the jaw-dropping tone is because of the carefully selected woods and intricate design of former Larrivee Luthier Jay Duncan.

“I get a lot of enjoyment out of my DuncanAfrica Selah guitar! I have used this beautiful guitar in lots of different settings: for performing, worship leading and recording. I don’t know if I’ve heard a more beautiful sounding guitar through the PA system. A really sweet sound!”

“I am so thankful for Jay Duncan and the DuncanAfrica project and the ongoing work in Uganda. I also immensely enjoy my Selah model DA guitar and have used it as my main instrument now for over 6 years both in the studio and on tour. It has proven itself over and over again to be a truly fine instrument while also weathering the abuse that often comes from being on the road.”
