Ever since I attended the Dangerous Curves exhibition at the MFA back in 2001
, I've had an appreciation for guitars as art. The art of the guitar is getting a new showcase at Harod's department store
in London. A huge collection featuring guitars customized for Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones will be displayed at the London store. The Born To Rock exhibit
includes over 150 guitars including the oldest electric guitar as well as electric guitars specially commissioned for the exhibition. These guitars, from Philippe Starck, Jennifer Lopez, Bryan Adams, David LaChapelle and many more will be eventually be auctioned off for charity. The guitar shown here titled, London Birth of a Cult, was bedazzled by Dior designer, Hedi Slimane. The exhibitions will be at Harrod's until March 3.
