"Just in time for the Summer of Love's 50th!" - Stevie Gurr, 2017

This is a hand-painted, original artwork guitar painted by my buddy Willard. Willard has done a lot of great work, usually in the rock and roll field. He had two of his giant Les Pauls displayed on Sunset Blvd, in Hollywood for a couple of years. He sells his work for a fair bit of money. This guitar is his artwork combined with the best basic rock and roll guitar I could make. Check him out. $2175 plus shipping, Paypalled. .

It's not just a piece of collectible art, though. It's a great little player as well, assembled from some of the best parts available.

7.5 lbs Swamp Ash USA-made body.
Neck: Musikraft custom-order. Radius 9.5, rock maple neck w/ flame maple cap. Fake clay top dots & 3/32nd black side dots, semi-rolled. 6105 medium jumbo nickel, soft 57 v .86/.96, 1 11/16ths, fender bone nut
Hardware: Peter Florance Voodoo TE-50

Glendale raw deal knobs
Glendale raw deal ferrules
Custom-made 2-hole control plate

Yessir, ...I've seen those patterns on TV also. And the TV didn't even need to be turned on!
