    I saw this on one of the Telecaster groups on FB. I thought it was such a cool paint job that I’d share it here.

    Hand painted by a guy named, Willard Lewis Snow.

    That one of the most horrible things I've ever seen :)
    Maybe I'm having an acid flashback all the way from 1967.

    A little too "busy" for my taste.

    Love it! I wonder how protected the painting is; that’d make the difference between a player and an artistic wall-hanger.

    I think there used to be more of these kinds of guitars, some not as good but many or most refinished (often by new owners) to look like stock guitars.

    I kind of dig it, but could see how other's might not. I think its very psychedelic and would be super cool for classic rock stuff. Screams Hendrix to me! Love the PG and how it blends so nicely with the body. Would you put a maple or rosewood neck on it?

    Wonder if the back is done as well?

    Not sure. It didn't show the back.

    Indeed. That was the first of 15 and counting. This is the guitar after it was finished - the photo Willard uploaded was of the guitar while it was in process...

    Sold a few of them so far, one was bought by Don Mare, another by Robert Keeley. Still a couple available at http://bunnynoseguitars.com
