More ‘Canmissioned’ Canjoes

A recent phone call from a grandmother in Florida was received inquiring on costs and details of the instruments made by the CanJoe Company. This particular conversation revealed that this grandmother and her musician granddaughter were at a local event in Florida where they saw “canjos”. Though they were impressed by the concept of the instruments, they were not impressed by the less than acceptable quality of them. They went home, got on line, and quickly discovered the “real deal” authentic, original instruments found ONLY available from the true source, the CanJoe Company. With a few moments of conversation, they discovered, too, that instruments from the CanJoe Company are ONLY available as custom, ‘canmissioned’ builds and are not pre-made, sitting on the shelf, ready to ship products. They liked the fact that the instrument that she would own would be built specifically for her. With a few questions about the ‘taste’ preferences from the 10 year old soon to be owner, it was discovered that she preferred Coke but also LOVES animals… not a problem, ‘canbining’ her choices was easy. On the shelves of archived cans in the CanJoe Company shop sat the perfect fit, a limited edition Polar Bear Coke can. She is now most pleased with her new, custom hand crafted, signed, dated, warranted for life, genuine “real deal” CANJOE!!!!

The smile on her face shown in the photo is “proof of the pudding” of her satisfaction and joy of owning the cool ‘canmissioned’ instrument made just for her.
