“You don’t have to preach honesty to men with creative purpose. Let a human being throw energies of his soul into the making of something, and the instinct of workmanship will take care of his honesty… A genuine craftsman will not adulterate his product. The reason isn’t because duty says he shouldn’t, but because passion says he couldn’t.” ~ Walter Lippman
There are unscrupulous shysters, quacks, charlatans, and snake oil salesmen in every occupation. As they pawn off their dregs to the public they, more often, are quickly packing up any remaining of their cheap, paltry, or ineffectual unsold merchandise and are hastily preparing to ride quickly out of town the moment that their last fast sale is made, never to be seen or heard from again. Such is the case with any item placed into the market that proves as attractive for consumers who are willing to spend their money for. There is a Latin phrase that many should always consider when the product sold appears to be a real bargain. That phrase is “caveat emptor”, let the buyer beware. After having pioneered the development and introduction of these cool one-stringed instruments as musical works of art to be sold in the world market and now having spent over twenty years creating, developing, improving upon, selling and marketing the truly authentic, original CanJoe Company musical instrument creations, there are now many who have jumped on the bandwagon to offer their various concepts of what they consider as comparable. When anyone might be contemplating the opportunity to own one, there is nothing else, anywhere, that truly compares. The CanJoe Company is not in the business to make or offer junk, and is not interested in lowering the quality of craftsmanship or product value in order to compete with those who do. Below are some previously published photos from past posts showing examples of the various levels of creations offered by the CanJoe Company from the least expensive “Deluxe” model to the very extreme custom-to-the-hilt “20th Year Anniversary” model which is CanJoe*John‘s newest and own personal instrument.
Below are a few testimonials recently emailed to the CanJoe Company from some very pleased individuals who ordered and received their instruments; some as for their own use, others as gifts.
“The Bains in New Mexico have received their canjoes. Response: “Awesome”. I appreciate the extra input into the order. I know it will be appreciated by them as well. Thanks for your personal interest in my order. I can tell you take pride in your workmanship.” ~ Fay Bain
“When I got home from work last night at 8:30, they were there!! There were two other people sitting in my living room and soon we were all tuning the instruments so we could play Happy Birthday and Amazing Grace in unison (sometimes even in harmony). This went on quite long into the night …They are beautiful! As promised, each is unique and lovely. I very well may hang them in the living room so anyone can pick one up to admire and play as the mood hits them. So life is extra good – the temperature is above freezing, the sun shining, the ice is melting, and music and laughter are abundant.” Thank you – In partnership ~ Anita
“I received the canjoes on Thursday(like you said!).They are gorgeous. Billy’s birthday was on Friday and he was truly surprised and stoked to have not only a new instrument to play with but also a piece of art. The knots and the faded can were perfect. The other two turned out just as beautiful and I cant wait to see the look on my uncles’ faces Christmas day. Thank you for everything, its been quite an experience! You will hear from me soon! Happy holidays!” Peace and Love, ~ Amelia Lu Lynch
