Evil Eyes - a collaboration with Jeff Raglus 

Jeff Raglus is an influential, inspirational Australian artist, his work spans pop, jazz, the commerical and the 'seriously out there'. I've been a fan since buying his amazing illustrated 'kid's books' ( I don't have kids. That's how good they are. ) back in the 90s and seeing his work for Mambo and in regular exhibitions around the traps. For a few years now we've been playing music together and it didn't take long for my tiny mind to hatch a plan for a three dimensional, playable collab ...

The guitar 'Evil Eyes' is a one off ( aren't they all ? ) 25" scale Harvester, made with recycled Queensland maple neck, recycled Vic ash body, Indian rosewoood fretboard, a 'Spaghetti Switch' and a handmade Harvester prototypic trapeze tailpiece.

 

The pickups are by Manlius in NY, they are strong P90 style pickups mounted in seethru Harvester resin covers.

Good, loud, clean fun !

Jeff's exhibition BE BOP POP is on now at 45downstairs gallery in Ye Olde Melbourne Towne and runs until easter, the guitar can be viewed and perhaps strummed in the gallery or contact me for more details.

It is of course for sale, comes with a moulded hard case, a string-up & setup to your desired specs and can be posted anywhere in the world.

Check out Jeff's show soon - featuring two years worth of his extraordinary output :
