I've been working on making small letterpress prints on my free time and just released the first 4. First time doing a letterpress run & I'm stoked about the way they turned out, the letterpress process really accentuate the small details. I have Stevie Ray, Hendrix, Randy Rhoads & Dimebag so far... The ultimate goal is to make an oversized screenprint with 12 or so of the most Iconic guitars of the last decades.

The kind folks at Blunt Graffix invited me to their latest Dead Rockstars show but unfortunately due to printer delays I had to pull out last minute. :(

Jerry definitely. trying to find models that are recognizable on their own. I Wish some players had more unique guitars, Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jeff Beck...

I also have on queue a lot of letter press work at home. Sadly, my day job has me creating new code realities all day... So I can't do as much as I would like.

Jimmy Page. Double-neck SG is pretty sweet and unique.

I have Angus young, brian may, cobain & springsteen almost ready for print.
I was also thinking James Hetfield(white explorer), zakkwylde(bulls eye),jimmy page, Mustaine (V), Garcia, Van Halen, Clapton, Slash(might be too generic). So many choices !!!

Buddy Guy's polka dot is an icon.
