Who We Are
In April, 2005, master luthier Jay Duncan and his team founded The DuncanAfrica Society. Their vision was to fight poverty in Africa while bringing outstanding instruments into the world. The people of Africa are brilliant and prolific, but are caught in the seemingly inescapable cycles of poverty and paucity caused by war, economic despair, lack of education and continuous privation.
A player first holding a DuncanAfrica guitar is often pleasantly surprised by the exceptional quality of its composition and the vitality of its tone. Each guitar is unique, constructed by hand while adhering to the highest standards, unlike most guitars today that are mass-produced in factories. At home in any genre or musical atmosphere, DuncanAfrica guitars are amongst the finest available today.
