You might have heard on our Twitter, Facebook, tumblr or Instagram that we launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Electric Loog Guitar this week. It’s surreal to even write that sentence down considering all the work we put toward this launch (10 months and counting!) and we’re so excited it’s finally out in the open for the world to see!
WHAT IS IT?
The Electric Loog Guitar is just the electric version of our good old acoustic Loog Guitars. It’s got 3 strings, comes unassembled and ends up being a small, little instrument with a huge, serious sound. You can watch our Kickstarter video here:
The response has been so far overwhelming and we’re very thankful and humbled by all of you who have taken the time to not only help us out by backing the project on Kickstarter, but also by frequently sharing the Electric Loog Guitar project on your own social media accounts.
John Biggs from Techcrunch also wrote up an awesome piece on the Electric Loog, where he actually dares to compare the Electric Loog to when Bob Dylan went electric himself. Can you believe it? Best. Feature. Ever.
The Electric Loog also got chosen as one of Kickstarter’s Staff Picks and even got the approval from Chris Ballew from the Presidents of the United States of America (who makes music for kids now – how cool is that?).
It’s only been three days since we launched this and can already feel the love
HOW CAN I HELP?
We seriously need your help to be able to get to our $50,000 goal. The first way is to pledge $150 to get an Electric Loog Guitar yourself – this is actually an amazing discount price considering the Electric Loog will sell for $200.
But that’s not the only way! We accept pledges from $1 and up, so if you just want to see this project happen, everything helps. And hey, even if you can’t afford to help us with funding and still dig the project, you can give us a hand by spreading the word on your own social media accounts and telling everyone you know about it.
It’s going to be one long month but we’re off to a good start. We’re optimistic so far – but, yeah, it’s been only three days. Let the nerves begin!
