First, I thought that this Les Paul guitar had made the mistake of working with the mafia! You know… It tried to double-cross them and ended up with concrete shoes at the bottom of a river !
But that’s not the real story of this guitar ! Duh !
This is the work of artist Douglas Henderson. The brand new Les Paul guitar is half buried in a concrete block. It is plugged to a 1970s amplifier stack that is switched on, turned up. I wish I could hear the humming and crackling of this never ending noisy guitar no-solo !
