    Bohemian Guitars Creates Functional Guitars From Oil Cans - They launched a Kickstarter campaign, too!

    Who new oil cans could be so useful?

    Bohemian Guitars, creators of one-of-a-kind, fully functional oil can guitars with a social action mission around music education, is launching its Kickstarter campaign at www.kickstarter.com.

    The unequivocal mission powering this inspirational brand—a deep, shared passion for creating and spreading music—drives this initiative as the brand looks to garner capital to expand production and operations for these distinct, high-quality instruments.

    As part of this Kickstarter campaign, Bohemian Guitars also will be rolling out their own line of branded 1-gallon oil can guitars—the Boho Series. Sourcing antique and vintage oil cans for each guitar is timely and costly, and with the Boho Series, the brand will be able to order materials in larger quantities, purchase better manufacturing equipment, and secure a workshop space, ensuring their products are more affordable and more accessible. Currently, this retro line of vintage-inspired Bohemian branding includes Bohemian Honey, Bohemian Moonshine, and the classic Bohemian Motor Oil cans.

    By participating in their Kickstarter campaign that runs through February 21, contributors will be the first to purchase the new Boho Series designs, as well as many other limited edition guitars. Additionally, Kickstarter supporters will receive various Bohemian Guitar merchandise based on the level of contribution. Rewards start at a $30 donation.

    "Bohemian Guitars could not be more excited to embark on the next chapter of our business," said Adam Lee, CEO of Bohemian Guitars. "To us, this Kickstarter campaign will not only help us create one-of-a-kind, quality instruments, but also support our mission to sustain the future of music education for kids—a key component of why we do what we do."

    Bohemian Guitars launched in 2012 as a business dedicated to creating premium guitars with a fresh, bluesy twang using vintage oil cans with a resounding commitment to supporting the continuation of music education programs. When you purchase one of these instruments, you support their social action initiative—music education—and for each guitar you get, Bohemian Guitars gives away an instrument.

    What do you think of Bohemian Guitars and its mission?
