Six String Nation

Over the last couple of days, I've been at the CUSA / League Data Technology Conference in Ottawa.  (CUSA = Credit Union Services Association)

The finale of the event was a presentation by Jowa Taylor, with the Six String Nation Guitar (  

What a powerful message, wonderful story, great history lesson, excellent presentation! Totally. Awesome! 

From their story ... "Six String Nation is the spirit of a country embodied in a  single guitar.

Canada. Its diversity of geographies, histories, mythologies, languages, literature, art, food, sport and industry all find a place in the body of the Six String Nation guitar, in the music coaxed from its strings by those who play it and in the imagination of all who encounter it.

The guitar is made from 63 items of real Canadian history and heritage in wood, bone, metal and stone representing different cultures, communities and characters from every province and territory of the country. A handful of additional pieces adorn the guitar strap and the interior of the case. Each piece tells a specific story."
