A Guitar Called Tofino

I'm always on the lookout for the word Tofino on the web and it turns out there are several items that have a Tofino "model." (Like Birkenstocks, for instance.) But here's a new one: a guitar called Tofino.

Beautiful, isn't it? And the name is appropriate as that top is red cedar.

Turns out that the fellows who designed this guitar, MacKenzie and Marr, will be on Dragon's Den this Wednesday, July 13. Check it out to see how the Tofino fared in "The Den." (I find this show hard to watch — I'm not big on public humiliation — but Daughter P, in particular, likes it so we'll try to tune in.) Although the show was pre-taped the designers can't reveal the outcome. Here's a blog post about their DD visit and a story from the Waterloo Record.
