Guitar by UliTroyo Guitar by UliTroyo
My Squier Strat

UPDATE 12/15/13: I've received a lot of feedback about this piece, so i figured i'd get around to answering your questions. Thanks for all the comments!

Q. Awesome and all, but won't the ink smudge?
A. No; i covered it with an adhesive laminate which'll prevent it from deteriorating.

Q. What did you draw it on?
A. I drew on a regular ol' pickguard, albeit one covered with a large permanent Avery label. I used Sakura Microns for the actual inking. I drew it in pencil first, then erased.

Q. Do you sell this kind of work? Will you make me one?
A. No, sorry, I don't have time for commissions. Thanks for the interest, though!

Excellent concept. Have you ever thought of using mirror-like scratchboard affixed to the pickguard? Might get some cool results.

Love it! I've always wanted to do that on my pickguard, but I just didn't knew if the ink or any kind of paint would stick. So I never did drew anything because I was afraid of messing it up.

Yours looks really cool! bout how much time did it took you? :)

hey there. this is top notch work. inspired me to create my own! im used to doing custom art on guitar bodies with paint but never crossed my mind to do a pickguard. J

ust a quick question, how did u seal it exactly? was it like an A4 plastic sheet u layered over the top or was it some kind of spray?

makes me want to take a sharpie and try and draw something beautiful on my Karina. But I know damn well that it will just be ruined and will never look as good as that, excellent design. Truly something to be proud of

dude. this is fucking gnarly! Check out the one I did, it was during my large sharpie phase before I even knew what microns were but I might buy a new guard just to try it out. Sanded mine down a bit so the ink would stick well, did a little bit of pencil work and then sharpie'd and sprayed with laminate.
