I was recently approached by music producer Decadon to add lights to an already custom guitar to make it even more one-of-a-kind. Let’s check out some of the challenges I faced.

It’s not every day you get handed a guitar that has only two others of its kind in the world, and it’s an even rarer occasion when the owner trusts you to cover it in LEDs. In order to maintain this trust, I wanted to figure out some way to add the lighting effects that I wanted without affecting the structural integrity of the guitar whatsoever. I didn’t want to drill into or glue onto the guitar due to the lack of an available second chance, so I came up with a plan to sandwich the guitar in between two layers and support my various lighting mechanisms through that.”
