So, show of hands. Who did not know that I would get back to making guitars some day? Okay, I may have been the only one, but I was wrong. A week ago or so I remembered that as of tomorrow I am to turn in something for a local show called “Electric Dreams” which was just intriguing enough for me to want to get involved. So I rattled around in the studio and came up with any number of guitars, but only one that would really lend itself to being wired to light up. I found lights on Amazon and went to work. Turns out that sewing a string of lights onto a rat wire guitar is at the very least tedious, but I was on a mission.
Remember the rat wire guitar planter thingy? Not terribly successful as the peacocks seem to think that it is a foreign object that must be regularly assaulted, but the extra piece I cut was hanging around. It turned out to be a fun project in the end, though I went to work on it this morning by 9 and was informed that it was 4:30, it would seem in the next hour. So the piece is ready for delivery tomorrow…”Electric Blue”.
As a bonus, I have the paper I used to protect the table top while I painted. They bring back to me the entire 365 Project, and the Blue Guitar series, all at once. Feels good.
