In 2006 I had this crazy idea of bending a guitar to make an artistic table. After much thought and designing (2 years), these are the results. I fashioned the first in the style and finish of a Gibson Les Paul guitar with a sunburst finish. There are Fender Stratocaster’s with a blue burst finish and 3 tone sunburst, Fender Precision Bass with a sunburst finish, and a Gibson Flying V in a cherry sunburst finish. I use special woods, like beautifully figured quilted maple, bird’s eye maple, curly maple and flame birch. I cut and form the body to match the shape of the guitar model I am making. I purchase nice guitar necks and tuners that match the style of the guitar. I airbrush dyes and coloured lacquer around the edges and middle. I use dichroic and iridescent glass, and all types of different coloured wood for the inlays. The inlays simulate the knobs, pick guard, pickups and bridges. I used walnut for some of the legs and simulated a leather strap laying on the floor. I finish with multi coats of high gloss lacquer.
