Art Guitar on Sale

Hoping to beat out the the most expensive guitar ever sold (Eric Clapton’s Stratocaster, which went for $959,500), modern artist Mark Ryden‘s handpainted Dean ML electric guitar is being auctioned off on eBay. Ryden’s work is a combination of cute/disturbing with paintings of big-eyed children in dream-like scenarios. The money rasied from the auction will go to Little Kids Rock, a non-profit organization that provides low-income children with free instruments and music lessons. The auction and a benefit concert are part of the exhibit called Six String Masterpieces. Today is the final day of the auction, but you can see the handpainted guitar unstrung and strung, below.

    I love his paintings. Especially the blood series. Believe it or not I heard about him from a show from tlc, on cable. He did some nice panitings of christina ricci, I think that she may be his muse, must be nice to be that famous. I hope somebody pay’s a million for some off my stuff one day.
