Phil Collen - 1st May facebook Quotes

"Mission accomplished! The world's largest PC Splatter Fender Strat....It will ship off to Cleveland in the next few days and take it's place on the city streets til it's auctioned off in October later this year. Look for it soon if you make your way out there...'Dexter' eat your heart out...."

"I was asked to paint a giant 10 foot guitar for a United Way charity called Guitar Mania. They're displaying a whole bunch of custom painted guitars in Cleveland, OH. Pretty cool stuff. The guitar will be a giant replica of my PC Splatter but it's actually a Fender Stratocaster. I'll see if I can keep the sexy jumpsuit & shoe booties. All the magic happened at the Fender Factory. That's Mike Duffy, Fender's social networks guru interviewing me."

The guitars are displayed on the city streets of Cleveland for residents and visitors to enjoy from the end of May through October, 2012. Corporations, organizations and individuals sponsor the guitars and select from a variety of local artists to paint, sculpt or decorate them. Celebrity artists also paint and decorate guitars."
