Donating just $1 will atleast send the message that you love fretless guitars & microtones, and understand that this is truly a grassroots effort which at times is dangerously overlooked, Thanks!

Wish I could've given some more. College students aren't among the 1%....(well not most anyways)

I guess every bit helps!
