The front of the acoustic guitar is an homage to the sun at midheaven, at the zenith of it’s strength and power. There is a ring of real shell beads and faux pearls at the focus.

The tropical embeaded design was a collaboration between myself and John Bead’s Creative Director Fernando DaSilva. Fernando presented the tropical theme, […]
