Yoshihiko Satoh

Artist Yoshihiko Satoh takes mass-produced goods that have become part of our every day life, enlarges and/or multiplies them, creating sculptures that unleash the energy residing in their function and shape. In 2002, he won the KIRIN ART AWARD Grand Prix for “Present Arms”, a 12-neck guitar conceived as a challenge to a rock guitarist he idolizes. In 2005 he placed second at the 6th Spiral Independent Creators Festival. Born in 1968, Satoh lives in Saitama, Japan and has a Masters degree from the Tokyo National University of Fine Art & Music. http://www2.tbb.t-com.ne.jp/hipopo-art/index.html Share...

Guitar porn – no, really …

Don’t try this at home … but then again …! This subtle attempt at sensual guitar lines is a serious instrument (KOZM SB-3) from luthier Jeff Kosmoski. Not guitar porn at all. He says: This is the SB-3, the guitar that basically started my journey of designing guitars with 3D CAD solid-modeling programs. Rather, um, provocative, and maybe a bit too sexy for players with more conservative sensibilities, I’ve put this design on the back-burner for now, as I pursue more conventional designs. I’ve posted another, slightly less overt, model (forgive pun) from his range in my Guitar of the Week page here. Want another view? Oh – I wonder how it sounds? http://kozmguitars.com Share...
