The Teenar Guitar Never Ceases to Amaze

Music Radar selected the Teenar as the most outrageous guitar ever made. It happens to have been made in 1986 by Lou Reimuller, husband of our dear friend and artist, Amy Crehore.

Music Radar deems Lou's guitar "All kinds of wrong."

Amy's repsonse: "Exactly what is so 'wrong' about her, I'll never know! She's just art made out of a found object -- a 'sculpture.' But, she also happens to play. The outrageousness must have to do with people projecting their own thoughts onto her and the whole idea of someone playing her. But, she really doesn't mind. She's not human!"
