Today’s Free Shirt Wednesday is brought to you by Casper Guitar Technologies based out of Leisure City, FL. I thought it was interesting that Casper Guitar Technologies builds custom guitars from sustainable or ‘smart’ wood sources. Steve Casper mentioned that this is a environmental responsibility he has, and I dig it!
Since the late 1980s, Casper Guitar Technologies has built guitar using FSC certified lumber, RoHs components and electronics in the tone and volume circuits and use low VOC finishes, solar powered battery chargers and low voltage LED lighting in some of his work areas at the shop.
Currently, Casper Guitar Technologies has 5 completely customizable models. All have bolt on style neck joint which gives lots of freedom to change neck and fingerboard materials.
He mentions that the S-Series Classic (The RetroCasper) is the most popular guitar he offers. It’s constructed using poplar, a sustainable wood that carries the same tonal characteristics as alder and is easy to acquire. Along with custom guitar building, he also winds and sells hand would pickups!

Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. it’s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if it’s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) I’ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. I’ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
