Additional Information


There is some LED lighting housed within the guitar that can be controlled with a small battery pack on the back of the piece. "Inspired by the song by Bruce Springsteen based on Tom Joad, the character in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. Some of the lyrics from the song are written on the guitar, for example: 'Wherever somebody's fighting for a place to stand, Or a decent job or a helping hand, Wherever somebody's struggling to be free, Look in their eyes, Ma, and you'll see me.'" - Victoria Roberts
