Lysa Provencio's Custom Guitars

Jason Torchinsky is a guest blogger on Boing Boing. Jason has a book out now, Ad Nauseam: A Survivor's Guide to American Consumer Culture. He lives in Los Angeles, where he is a tinkerer and artist and writes for the Onion News Network. He lives with his partner Sally, five animals, too many old cars, and a shed full of crap.

Fender has had a program where they're finding up-and-coming artists to paint guitars; my friend Lysa Provincio has done a few of these, and they look pretty great. In addition to this one, there's more on her site. Enjoy!


  1. Oh wow. My 13 year old daughter got a Fender New American Classic this year for her birthday, but she’d have loved that one so much more. Very, very nice.

  2. I encourage readers to visit the legendary Girl Brand guitar company out of Tucson.

    This guy makes the most beautiful (and beautiful-playing) Telecaster style guitars in the world. It’s nice that Fender itself is trying to catch up without doing that lame ‘aged guitar’ look that Gibson is doing.

    That shape is the best one to do guitar art on in my opinion, because it’s wide and flat.. the SG shape is smaller, but great too. Forget acoustic guitars, paint just ruins the sound!
