Framing a Guitar!

This little job was completed last week, a good customer of ours came in asking if it was possible for us to frame a signed guitar he had recently bought at auction. Never wanting to shy away from a challenge, we of course said yes (then spent a few hours scratching our heads thinking about the best way to go about it!) The customer also specified that it should be lit from underneath with LED's (Not something we had tried before) - This involved us drilling a hole in the side for the power cord along with hiding the transformer box thingy inside the slip mount. We had to use the deepest moulding we could get from Arqadia, and even then it was only just deep enough allowing the backing board to sit flush with the back of the frame.

Our customer was very pleased with the results and so were we!

First step was to make the frame and mount (after testing the guitar fit)

Next we fixed the LED's to the inside of the mount

Let There Be Light!

The guitar is held securely in place with plastic straps

The back is fixed in place, and then taped and hangers fitted
