IN 2006 I HAD THIS CRAZY IDEA OF BENDING A GUITAR TO MAKE AN ARTISTIC TABLE. AFTER MUCH THOUGHT AND DESIGNING THESE ARE THE RESULTS. I USED BEAUTIFULLY FIGURED BIRD’S EYE CURLY MAPLE. I LAMINATED SOME CHERRY IN THE MIDDLE, AND MORE MAPLE ON THE BOTTOM. I CUT AND FORMED THE BODY. I PURCHASE A NICE GUITAR NECK. I AIRBRUSH DYE AROUND THE EDGES AND MIDDLE OF THE BODY AND THE BOTTOM OF THE NECK. I CHOOSE THE RIGHT DICHROIC AND IRRIDESCENT GLASS FOR THE INLAYS. WITH THE GLASS INLAYS I SIMULATED THE KNOBS, PICK GUARD, PICKUPS AND BRIDGES.
I USED WALNUT FOR THE LEGS AND DYED IT BLACK TO SIMULATED A LEATHER STRAP LAYING ON THE FLOOR. I FINISHED WITH MULTI COATS OF HIGH GLOSS LACQUER. I PUT SILVER SPARKLE IN THE FIRST COAT OF LACQUER. I FINISHED THE FIRST ONE IN JUNE 2008 AND IT SOLD AT AN ART SHOW 2 DAYS LATER. THE SECOND ONE I BUILT IN AUGUST, 2008. THE THIRD IN SEPTEMBER 2008.

This the third one. It is modeled similar to a Fender Stratocaster with a Blueburst Finish

I have a feeling that you’ll be making a lot more of these. Very nice.

interesting concept… what kind of air brush setup do you use. I’m interested in trying that technique myself someday
