How to get my custom art on your gear…
If you are interested in my custom artwork on your guitar, bass, amp, or cabinet, there are a few different options:
I prefer to paint guitar bodies that are sealed and ready for paint, or raw wood. I have painted guitars that are already finished and clear coated, but if you bring or ship me a guitar like this, it must be stripped of all parts and hardware. I’m not equipped to strip existing finishes, so if you send me a guitar with a pre-existing finish and clear coat, know that I will be painting on top of it! You can order a guitar body that is either raw wood or sealed and ready for paint from a number of different online vendors, such as Allparts, Musikraft, Warmoth, etc.
Amps and Cabinets:
I prefer to paint on raw wood amp head shells and cabinets. I can paint on top of tolex as well, but it’s not my preference. Head shells and speaker cabinets can be ordered from many online vendors such as mojotone.com
Ordering a custom guitar featuring my artwork:
I’m currently working with Suhr Guitars, Robert Kantor Guitars (crystalized style), and Luxxtone Guitars. You can order a custom guitar featuring my artwork from any one of these exceptional guitar companies. I am open to working with other companies and dealers as well.
Suhr will prepare the guitar body and send it to me. I will paint the guitar and send it back to Suhr where they will apply a thin polyester topcoat. It will then be buffed to a flawless glossy finish. Finally, it will be assembled and tested by a Suhr craftsman making sure that the instrument is up to their exact specifications. http://www.suhr.com
To get my art on your custom Suhr guitar, contact Travis Tingley at Guitars@suhr.com.
- Robert Kantor Guitars
Acclaimed artist Robert Kantor and I are collaborating, combining our unique styles to produce one-of-a-kind pieces of playable guitar artistry! I paint the guitar body, and then Robert and his team place thousands of Swarovski rhinestones on top of my artwork, mirroring every detail, including the exact colors and shading. The result is nothing less than spectacular! For the players looking for some glitz and glam, this is definitely one way to stand out from the masses!
