LIFE

The concept here: Breath OLD Life into a NEW guitar. Or, in other words, take a Life magazine from the past, a garage-sale acoustic with no future, combine them with a lot of artistic care, and arrive at an execution where both have a new life as something someone may love and appreciate.


This piece of CONNER GUITART was created with ONE 1939 issue of LIFE Magazine. I incorporated photos from the single issue ranging from feature articles to interesting headlines and advertisements. The actual color masthead from the issue is affixed inside and just behind the sound hole of the guitar. The table of contents from the issue is on the back of the guitar. The wall mount graphics consist of 21 covers from issues of LIFE magazine from the late 30s & early 40s.


NOTE: This execution does NOT include a functional guitar. It’s simply offered as a piece of wall art. However, if you would like, this direction can most definitely be achieved with an electric guitar while maintaining full functionality of the instrument.
