TEASER OF OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THIS CHARITY AUCTION

Ambitious in process, T$F utilized the traditional art of pyrography to approach their custom guitar.  Pyrography means “writing with fire” and is the technique of using a heated tip to burn designs onto natural materials such as wood. After carefully returning the instrument to the raw finish, T$F applied over 80 hours tediously rendering their authentic pattern.

Guided by the motif of harmony, and inspired by street musicians, hustlers, speakeasies, and the original players of the greasy southern back alley blues joints, The $tatus Faction aptly named the guitar “Sidewalk Suzy.”
