The Number 4

18 in wide  X  45 in high

In the late 70's Pete Townshend had 9 Les Paul guitars that he used on tour. Each one had a large numeral behind the tailpiece which represented a different tuning. The number simply made it possible for the guitar techs to know what guitar Pete needed for any given song.  

This is my rendition of Pete's Number 4 Les Paul. The body is built from reclaimed hardwood. The neck is rosewood along with a figured White Oak headstock. The aluminum #4 came from an industrial salvage company on the west side of Chicago. The background is made from highly figured White Oak complete with a hand painted and distressed British flag. Rusted steel and copper components round out the Number 4's details.

This piece currently hangs in the Clyde Theater in Ft Wayne Indiana
