Archtop Guitar, Lou Monte New Yorker model, 1963. This custom guitar is a one-of-a-kind instrument that D’Angelico designated as a Lou Monte New Yorker model for Lou Monte, the New York Italian American singer who was well known for his novelty songs, including “Dominick the Donkey” and “Pepino the Italian Mouse.” This guitar, with an unusual round sound hole instead of the typical f-holes, is one of the last guitars that D’Angelico built and was made in the last year of his life.
I WANT IT!!!!!!!! Paul Villinski's Fable and Rise - a visual melody of butterflies blooming out of the crevices of a cello and an electric guitar, respectively. It feels as though you can hear the music. He created the beautifully fluttering insects out of recycled cans that once littered the streets of New York.
