The finished Monkey machine!
THE ART OF CREATING custom graphics for guitars via user-supplied jpgs or pdfs isn’t exactly new—Guitar Player worked with the Peavey Custom Shop to design a 40th Anniversary Guitar emblazoned with classic GP covers six years ago—but California’s Artist Series Guitars is offering bands a very easy and affordable way to promote themselves with logo-embedded solidbodies. I met ASG’s owner, Vijay Kumar, at a NAMM show, and was intrigued by the look and feel of his instruments, so I decided to craft a promo guitar for my “punked Monkees” tribute band, The Trouble With Monkeys.
