Musical

Cebu is famous for handcrafted guitars with inlaid shells which can be compared to the best in the world. You can find these craftsmen in Maribago, Mactan island but if you're a regular here in Cebu, you will spy some of them in Lapu- Lapu City. Shown here is a bar owner's collection. The owner makes custom guitars called HARANA - mind you, not very cheap guitar but its worth your money.

Jane, thanks for showing us these lovely instruments. I will take the cutaway on the right! :^) I had no idea there were luthiers in Cebu who had such a reputation. Really cool,

Dear Daily Photo blogger. I'm sorry for the generic message, but I wanted to get this to as many of you as possible.

I have set up "The Daily Photo Spot" on Fanpop. If you go there, you can enter your specific City Daily Photo blog (Add link). Paris, London and Dubai are already there, so it would be great to see all of you DP Bloggers listed.

While you are there, vote for the others!
