Indian Corn Guitar

Please call 773.489.4830 or email to discuss details and make arrangements for your commission.


This guitar was commissioned in the spirit of Eric Clapton’s “The Fool” psychedelic guitar, which he played back in his Cream days.

I didn’t want to literally copy that motif and my client encouraged me to create my own interpretation. So what we have here is more of a Native American psychedelia as opposed to that London scene from the 60s. I like to think of this as Americana camouflage useful for keeping a low profile in farm country.

This guitar is constructed the same as my Silvertone-style guitars.
