There's Something Happening Here and Moms Not Bombs GuitarTown 2012 designs...

There's certainly something happening along Sunset Strip in West Hollywood and that's the return of the musically inspired public art installation, GuitarTown. Slightly paired down from 2010's twenty plus first wave of guitars, here are two more of the nine new designs gracing The Strip for 2012 (with more to follow I'm sure).

Of all the over-sized Gibson Les Paul guitars that make up Sunset Strip's GuitarTown, Julianna Martinez's ceramic mosaic designs always look like they've had the most effort and work put into them.

The sheer detail is incredible and this guitar is inspired by the folk rock band Buffalo Springfield.
