    My girlfriend, the amazingly talented Trisha Lurie, blows me away with her art all the time- but this really knocked me out. Rob Navarette from tone Merchants wanted a custom-painted headshell for their new shop, I'm guessing it'll house a Friedman Brown Eye amp. The shop is all deep reds, really cool looking. So my GF came up with this design, it's all hand-painted using stencils she makes herself, and then she does all the details with a brush. Insane, no? she's doing a matching cab/grillecloth for this amp next. i put my Marsha chassis in it so it looks complete. tomorrow she'll give it to TM. Pics:

    That is very kick ass, but there should be a handle on top if you want to use it.

    (I love the amp, but it would be hard to pick up/carry).

    no hardware on it yet! There'll be a handle of course, a grille for the vent and gold piping around the faceplate too.

    That is amazing. Is there a way to keep it from fading or wearing too quickly?

    PM me! I don't want to seem spammy, I was really just excited about the badass-ness of it, but she says she may do more of these if there is a demand. This one was really hand tailored to what TM/Rob wanted, she can do all kinds of stuff..

    That is extremely cool on many levels. I can't say I've ever seen anything like it. Has she ever done any guitars?
