Guitar on Guard


Yesterday, I showed you a fiberglass catfish that graces the deck at Rock Harbor Marina.  The huge fiberglass guitar shown above stands guard outside of Books-A-Million in Nashville West, a life-style center on the westside (of course) of Nashville.  I particularly like the keyboard swirling around the guitar.

A few years after the catfish were auctioned off, there was another fundraiser for which artists decorated fiberglass guitars.  Businesses that bought them put them on display.  Most of them are gone now, too, although there are four outside of stores at Nashville West.  Tomorrow, I'll show you one with a little "twang."

Its neat that there are a few that remain. That could be my car.

I must admit, I like the guitar better than the catfish. They have something similar in Berlin - except they use bears. I like the idea of having one animal or type of statue that symbolizes the city. I think it's also nice for the artists to decorate and auction them off.

Music Row still has several of the guitars. I think there's a catfish in front of the Boy Scouts HQ on Hillsboro Road. :)
