Starting next week I should start getting the final revisions to the 
designs for the production version of the Harmonicaster electric 
harmonica. I expect to start limited production in the next couple of 
months and I'm tentatively planning on showing at the summer NAMM show 
in Nashville and then at the SPAH convention in August.

To promote the launch, I'm thinking of auctioning off serial number 001, 
with any proceeds beyond the MSRP going to a suitable charity or 
charities. I figure it's a once in a lifetime opportunity for a 
harmonica enthusiast to own a piece of what I'm hoping will be musical 
history. Imagine being able to buy the first electric guitar that came 
off of Leo Fender's assembly line.

As far as what charitable organization will receive the proceeds, right 
now I'm leaning towards a couple of children's hospitals but I'd also 
like to consider music related charities, perhaps those that educate 
kids about music or something that helps retired musicians.

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to offer them.
