Three; It's a Magic Number

Here's a example of just how right El KaBong was when he chose his three stringer to be his occasional weapon of choice. Rafael Atijas is revisiting the trio philosophy with his new design of the Loog. These exciting new kid's guitar kits are the perfect solution to getting your children interested in the guitar while bonding & helping them build their first instrument of their very own. Equally interesting is how he got the funding to start this company. Need more proof on why three is a magic number? Let YouTube provide the evidence with Bob Dorough's video of Multiplacation Rock.
