Elvis Presley Art Guitar

I finished sanding and removing the finish and stain from this wonderful  old arch top guitar. Don’t even know what kind of guitar it is, as it had no name anywhere. The wood is beautiful and I am anxious to start staining and painting this old beauty. This will be an “art only” piece to hang on your wall. This guitar is not a playable guitar as it has been through a lot of structural damage in the neck area through the years. Making it playable would be a very expensive task.

As I was hand sanding the wood down to a smooth canvas the guitar told me what it wanted to be. A tribute to Elvis Presley, my hero since I was eight years old. He was the reason I picked up a guitar and wanted to be a rock n roller. He just always made it look so fun and you know, the girls love a guitar player…haha!

All finished and I’m super happy to say it’s already sold. Thank you so much to Derek for giving my guitar art a home!
