Hand tooled leather guitar cover made for the Martin Guitar Company museum
Western artist Al Shelton began carving his exquisite hand tool leather guitar cover -commissioned by the Martin Guitar Company- in 2005. The project took longer than he had anticipated due to his poor eye sight.
Well, as you can see by the photo above, the guitar cover is now complete and it was delivered in April 2009 to the Martin Guitar Museum for placement. Note that master leather artist Chuck Smith helped Al complete the project.
