Default Hopeless request RE: circa 1970 children's book

OK, all you trivia buffs and avid readers, if anyone can come through for me on this I will be SO happy (and SO surprised!!):

The book I'm looking for information on is about a black boy who wants a guitar. He starts to save money to buy one in a jar with a note taped to it that says "guitar money." In the meantime, he makes a guitar out of a cigar (or shoe) box with rubber bands.

Can ANYONE offer me any clues about the title of this book?

I've tried searching the Library of Congress card catelog and google.com, but I just can't find anything!

It rings a bell. I've never read it but I'm fairly sure it was in my mother's school library (she was the head-t). Unfortunately I can no longer ask her.

Sigh. I've not had any luck anywhere I've posted......

I'm beginning to think the book is just a figment of my imagination!

Try this website:

Maybe they could figure it out.
