When you get down to it, it’s not a huge mystery how this was achieved, though how the gentleman maintained the patience to do it all is something we might wonder forever. With epoxy and resin, he made a solid block out of colored pencils (1200, in all), and cut and sanded it into shape. We’re guessing he’s a Vernon Reid fan, because this guitar is what you’d literally call living color.Don’t skip over the parts where he’s sanding it down. The most beautiful wood shavings you’ve ever seen ensue, like glorious, inedible cotton candy. And yes, it really works in the end, as Mr. Art busts out a bit ofÂ “To God Be The Glory” by Mateus Asato, suggesting that perhaps divine inspiration was at work here. “Colors of the Wind” is the tune we were hoping for, but maybe he takes requests.
