“I adore my DuncanAfrica Selah guitar! I’ve used this beautiful guitar in 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!”

“I am so thankful for Jay Duncan and the DuncanAfrica project. I immensely enjoy my Selah 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.”
