The first Savage Lands partner
When I meet Virgile, I was not into folk guitars at all… But when I tried one of his handmade guitars, I knew I had to change my mind. Then came the idea to ask him to build one of those unique instruments, with a local wood from Costa Rica, and then sell it in order to finance reforestation.
Not only he said “yes”, but got into the core of our concept and inspired us with new ideas. The guitar should be played by famous people, and it would be a greater idea to give many people the opportunity to win this guitar.
This is when the concept of organizing a raffle came from.
Then it was just pure joy, watching the instrument being built step by step. A true vintage style blues guitar that will remind us how beautiful is the link between our instruments and the nature where they come from.
