I had some friends who started a stained glass business. It went OK for a while, I think – they were pretty good. I used to watch them make pieces and was surprised by how time consuming it all was. I’m not sure why the business ended. These guitars are really good – I’d probably have one of these if I ever got those 6 magic numbers on Saturday night!
I’ve been looking at the art of Stanley Mouse since the sixties (remember them? They say that if you remember the sixties, you weren’t really there) on many album covers (remember them? 12″ square and ideal as a flat surface for construction purposes) and posters. He will always be associated, for me and many others, with concert posters in San Francisco and The Grateful Dead, though he designed artwork for lots of other bands too. But I’ve just recently been to his website, where you can see the full breadth of his work – I especially like the Hot Rod section and there is a range of Fine Art that is totally different to his better known works. Check it out.
