Upcycled Guitars & Ukuleles
Posted on 31st May 2020 at 15:21
If you love music, the chances are that you'll like our upcycled guitars and ukuleles.
After learning to decoupage tables and trays, I decided to try the technique on something a bit more complicated - a guitar! The technique worked a treat as my first instrument covered with images of the Rolling Stones was snapped up within half an hour of going on sale. Since then my customised guitars and ukuleles, mostly featuring iconic rock images, have since become a trademark of Afterglow. We have also expanded the range to include guitar-shaped clocks.
Unwanted instruments are transformed using decoupage and several coats of varnish into a real statement piece - either to be displayed decoratively or played, as each instrument is also repaired and restrung ready to make music again.
Ukuleles often feature fun images such as superheroes or cartoons but anything is possible, from your favourite band to classic children's literature like Alice in Wonderland.
I am proud that a bar in Liverpool located next door to the historic Cavern Club commissioned four of my guitars, and I have also sent instruments to the USA and Europe.
I can supply acoustic or electric guitars and if you have an instrument of your own that needs a new lease of life, please get in touch.
