Guitars-in-progress get colorful

Mundelein, IL (May 8, 2008) - Every guitar is a blank canvas to Chewy, the Paint Guru for Washburn and Parker guitars. He oversees the process of crafting each instrument''s visual impact, whether that means bringing out the natural grain of tonewoods, coordinating a killer color scheme or painting custom graphics.

In this video, Chewy walks you through his shop where you can see guitars at various stages of the process.
