the idea: paint my old Washburn guitar to match my piano in Street Pianos Boston
the ideator: Miranda Aisling
I mean, are you really surprised?
I have been meaning to do this for years. At first I didn’t do it because the guitar was new. Then because I was afraid the paint would affect the soundboard of the only guitar I had. Then because it has so many memories, like the ding from a quarter my friend threw at me during nerd camp thinking I could use it as a pick. But, finally, it’s time. Paint has been put to panel and the first Painted Guitar of Boston is underway.
Hopefully I’ll finish it by next Saturday when I plan to get some of my friends to visit my piano, which is now in Dewey Square!, and have a painted instrument jam. Who’s with me?
