GuitarTown is back along L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip and here are two designs new for 2012.

This glossy black 'Imma Be' bumblebee design can be found outside the 9200 building along Sunset Boulevard and it replaces Erin Lareau's Katy Perry tribute guitar from GuitarTown's first wave in 2010.

Next up is the 'Electric Warrior' design by Shepard Fairey whose work is inspired by Marc Bolan of T-Rex, with a nod to vintage vinyl LP and stereo graphics.

You'll find this horizontal guitar outside the Andaz Hotel, where you'd previously have found a guitar tribute to Jimi Hendrix from the inaugural GuitarTown along the Sunset Strip.

If you like this public art installation concept, you should also check out the Hearts of San Francisco sculptures and L.A.'s Community of Angels Project from the early 2000's.
