This range of guitars has been directly inspired by our involvement with The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation. In 2014 we collaborated with artist Andy Howe to make a guitar for Paul McCartney, it featured a painted cover. We went on to create two more guitars with painted covers, with Art work by Andy's wife, Jayne Howe. These guitars were built for Josh McClorey from the Stripes and Elton John's son. Due to the high interest and positive reaction these guitars recieved, we decides to work on a larger collaboration.

We came up with 'The 12 Cities' project. We picked 12 cities that had a major influence on the history of rock and roll. Each guitar would be individually hand painted to reproduce the soul and spirit of the city and the music it inspired.
