Twilight Sad / Copeland Guitars Miniature!

Monday, June 18th, 2018

I still have several of these tiny Jazzmasters left!
They are numbered, limited edition, and approved by The Twilight Sad.
These miniatures are handmade: cut from the original block of wood from which Andy’s real guitar was cut, “painted with fire” just like the real guitar, and finished with spar varnish for extra protection. I can send out just a mini guitar to set on a shelf, or I can attach a ring so it can be turned into a pendant/rearview mirror decoration/etc.

$20 from each guitar sale will go to MIND UK, in honour of Scott Hutchison.

Postage included, these are $40ea within the US, or $46 worldwide.

US order via PayPal | WORLDWIDE order via PayPal

The “painted with fire” miniature, without pendant ring.

Andy MacFarlane Jaguar pendant

These are US$30 each, and $10 from every sale of this pendant will go to Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow.

These pendants are MADE TO ORDER – I do not keep them in stock, so please allow up to two weeks for me to create and ship out your tiny guitar. :)

Made from polymer clay with birch veneer on the neck for strength. Varnished in water-resistant polyurethane. Each comes with an 18″ nickel-plated ball chain (not pictured).

These are available from my Etsy shop, but if you would like to contact me about them, you can also do so here. X

Vennart

Mike Vennart Strat

This is my tiny version of Mike Vennart’s very unique Stratocaster.

I am very pleased to announce that, with Mike’s permission, I am now selling these handmade miniatures as necklaces (or wall hangings, or whatever)…. and a large portion of every sale will go to help Mike’s hero, Tim Smith, of Cardiacs. Tim was hit hard by major medical problems in the past few years, and we are very keen to help him with the huge costs of care.

If anyone is interested in having a wee bit of artwork to show their love for the inimitable Vennart, and helping out a friend at the same time, each of these is US$40 (due to the very very intricate paint job that I do by hand each time), and $15 per sale will go on to help Tim Smith.

These are available from my Etsy shop. If you wish to ask any questions, feel free to contact me on Etsy, or from my Contact page here.

Also, please support Mike directly by ordering his NEW ALBUM or a shirt or three!!! XX
