Guitar II

Regular price $45.00

I designed this one so it could be hung one of three ways: with the neck towards the left or towards the right or straight up.  You will notice In the white part of this guitar are hand written, famous songs that have been played on this type of guitar.  Three of the songs were played by Jimi Hendrix, who was left handed and played his guitars upside down.  So his songs are written upside down.  Depending on how you would like to hang it, will depend on what you can or can not easily read.  Hendrix also influenced the background, since he was know to light his guitars  on fire.  The background doesn't give it any sense of a horizon, which makes it easy to flip in a different direction.  I've added one more nod to him and that is the year he was born.  You can find that in the black part of the guitar and you need to hang it upside down to read it correctly.

*Should anyone be confused by the photos, this is just one guitar.  The photo of three guitars is to illustrate the various ways it can be hung.
