Item Description

  This 5-foot fiberglass electric guitar was inspired by a quote that the artist,Duncan Reid, read from Jim Lovell, where he mentioned that when looking at the Earth from space, he could cover the entire planet with his thumb. Duncan felt this was a potent and sobering metaphor for the fragile world we live in. He has been working on space-program themed pieces for a while, but when he read that quote, he felt it was perfect for GuitARTS.
