“Charmed by its [the $100 guitar’s] no-name vibe and single bridge pickup that looks like an old radio,” Nick Didkovsky and Chuck O’Meara masterminded the $100 Guitar Project which now involves some 68+ guitarists. Bridge Records will release the project as a double CD with royalties to go to CARE. [More about this project…]
