Looking great as always.

Thanks UJ .  A few things on this guitar are not shown in the pics due to their personal content ,  but  yeah it was a fuun to  cover it in graffiti ;-)

 PS ...  Jean-Michel Basquiat was a New York  graffiti artist , pop icon, cultural figure, who rose to success during the 1980s ,, with the help of Andy Warhol , who seemed to take him under his wing .

I don't know what Basquiat art is, but I sure like about 20 things about this colorful, art loaded swampy. I veiwed every one of the pics full sized to get a better look. Out of the park, Pick.
