Fretless Canjo

 Whatever happened to using your hands and imagination to create, to problem-solve, and to have fun?


What if in one short afternoon you could ignite a child's imagination, and inspire a future maker?


And what if it took only a couple of screwdrivers, and a willingness to have fun, to make that happen?


With the Fretless Canjo from C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, you will give your child the thrill of hands-on, project-based, musical fun, and open the door to a bright, new future.




The Fretless Canjo Kit is a small collection of simple parts waiting to be decorated by a creative mind. 


And with just a bit of adult supervision, the entire kit goes together in under 20 minutes.


In that short time, your child learns basic skills using hand tools to assemble his or her canjo.


From there the door to a whole new world of making music is flung open, and your child learns that he or she can play a musical instrument.
