Singing Slaves Partscaster
by Theseus Chan
Electric Guitar, Ink and Vinyl Record
40.6 cm x 32.4 cm x 4.5 cm
This piece is made with a late 60's specs Esquire-que relic electric guitar with vinyl record pickguard. It is not a real Fender guitar but rather something I put together using parts I sourced from the Internet. I painted the Singing Slaves on the guitar because I wanted to bring across the message that music not only communicates and connects but it also offers relief to those who are suffering.
