The Township Oilcan Guitar was engineered on the original Khoi “ramkietjie” guitar developed by early Khoisan African tribes. This one is made from Castrol Oil cans. Township art assists local musical instrument makers and designers, and also promotes local musicians. After careful component selection and tuning, the Township Oilcan guitar has taken its place on the world stages including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Hall, and The Royal Albert London. It has been featured in the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. The guitar offers a unique African Township sound and each guitar is handmade and hand-tuned to exacting musical standards. A most unusual musical instrument and an original gift to any musician.
