My guitar rockin' son would have loved this project... To make it and display it. The patriotic color scheme looks great and you could change it up a bit with glitter or metallic finishes, or change out the colors of you wanted a different effect. This would make a nice gift or look great in a rec room, basement okay area, or the every popular garage, for those budding garage bands! Fun and inspiring!
