Thread Name: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
Subject: RE: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
I painted a cheapie one up for Amoret when she was about 5. It was lovely deep blue and orange - and I really loved playing it, just because I liked it (it didn't sound very good).
Then Mark came home over-refreshed from the pub and put a foot through it.
Heartbroken I was.
My current Norman guitar suits my personality. I have decorated it with celtic-ish patterns in those "temporary tattoo" things, with a whole load of shiny stick-on sparkly things (including a swarm of stick-on shiny bees), and 3 stick-on Izone polaroid photos of Mark Hamm & I.
Doesn't sound any the worse for all the luggage, because my playing is pretty basic anyway.
I love it in all its crass splendour!
Can't see anyone nicking it ever either!
