We are creating a new project and would like to invite you to apply to be part of the project. We've been creating instruments out of antique motor oil cans and the business has been blowing up.
We've been having many media outlets reach out to us for press coverage such as Fox 9 News, CNET, Washington County Bulletin, and other places reached out to partner with them including the Lowertown Guitar Festival, NAMM, some music stores, and a winery in Napa Valley. The actual assembly and selling of the oil can guitars is very labor intensive and not very profitable, however, it’s an amazing tool to help promote music, create viral videos, and help collaborate with other artists.
The project: “Oil Can Sessions” Similar to the TV Show, “Live from Daryl’s House.”
The Hayburners will be on display and used while performing at the Midwest Harmonica workshop 7-20-17 at the MN Music Café in St Paul, MN and will be at the Lowertown Blues Festival July 21 and 22. We are in the process of making vintage oil can banjos, ukuleles, and a shovel guitar. We also partner with non profit organizations by donating a percentage of the sales to the non profit to raise money for music education for kids.

One of the biggest questions we get is, "how did you make that?!" There's no secret, just a lot of trial and error, skill, practice, and lots of work. Here's how we do it.
Vintage/Antique Motor Oil Cans are purchased from art collectors, antique shops, dealers, flea markets, and online
3 days spent washing, cleaning, soaking and sanitizing the cans. The cans are 50+ years old so it takes a while to get all the old oil and stuff out of there. "Very dirty part of the job!"
We make a template and spend hours of time using a rotary blade to carefully, meticulously cut through the metal to prep for installation/assembly for the neck, pickups, pots, jack, etc
Solder the pickups, pots, jack, etc
Sharp edges are sanded and filed so they are safe to the touch. A rubber gasket is also carefully applied and glued to the bottom edge. Rubber feet are installed to the bottom so the Hayburner can stand upright with no stand
We purchase all new parts, necks, pickups, hardware etc, then we crown and polish the frets and assemble the Hayburner Guitar
We are proud to announce our partnership with The Northwoods Blues Festival. Purchase a one of a kind, hand-made, Vintage Oil Can Guitar and 30% of the proceeds will be donated to the Festival to help keep blues alive! Offer ends July 1st, more info at http://www.hayburnerguitars.com/
