Last week I was lucky enough to spend the day with the actual Rickenbacker 330 that appeared on the back cover of All Mod Cons.
You know—the one with “The Boys” sticker.
It was a real treat for me to hold such an historic guitar, even for a limited time. There were some beautiful details: check out the close-up above where you can see Paul Weller’s fingernail marks chiselled over time into the fretboard. It was clear that this machine had seen some serious action.
For the exhibition we are creating an incredible large scale artwork based on this iconic guitar, and will be revealing it on the opening day, 25 May 2019.
Put the exhibition dates in your diary—it runs from 25 May to 13 July 2019, and sign up for all the news from Snap if you haven’t already.
