My little cousin is graduating from high school next month and has been accepted into Gonzaga University! She’s always been involved with music and her mom (my cousin) has posted IG videos of her playing guitar and singing, so I thought that this guitar box would be a good way to present her (by mail) with a gift card to help her set up her dorm when she goes (hopefully in the fall #pandemic).
The interwebz tells me that Gonzaga colors are dark blue and white, sometimes with red accents and the pics her mom posted tell me that their welcome literature is dark blue and grey which is how I chose colors.
I accidentally started gluing the front of the neck to the neck “box” so decided to disguise the marks with some lighter grey ink all around the neck and frets. I’m pleased with how well that desperate rescue maneuver worked out! Of course, in the process of adding that grey ink, I got some on one of the white pegs. D’oh! So I added some pearly, uh… goop, to those.
Working on this yesterday reminded me of the box I made for her brother last year, so I posted it here yesterday. They grow up so fast!
