Japanese Guitar Builder (mostly hand made)

Global Warming & Guitars

The guitars were made by wooden material mainly. We are not sure how many guitars have
been made for past years. The some wooden parts of guitars have been in danger of
extinction. The strings used the Stainless steel and other materials How we could recycle these ?
The natural materials are limited. We should recognize it and how we could contribute for
Global Warming problem ! We are now developping the new natural materials.
