Psychedelic Gumbo Guitar


My own version of the Southern Jumbo guitar.  Maybe it ought to be called Southern Gumbo with all its wild textures.  The original image was captured with my iPhone 7 plus.  The image looked atrocious so I decided to embellish it with psychedelic colors and bokehs.  The hands are courtesy of this present writer.  I thought that they fell right into the sound hole was providentially cool.  Obvious from the original image is that they are reflections from the glass cage.  The guitar was Don Everly's (of the Everly Brothers) main songwriting instrument.  The Southern Jumbo is a powerful flat-top guitar favored by many country and western musicians.


Before its transformation.  MOMA, New York.

Hope you are having a wonderful day.
