Tangled Guitar

I found an old beat up guitar at a  yard sale for $4.00 and snatched it up last fall. Then last month with forest fires all around in CO I found time to work on it.  Had to stay indoors due to smoke, but put on a mask long enough to sand it down.  Wish I had taken some before pics, as this guitar was really a mess!
After sanding, staining and sealing I stamped several images from various stamp companys (including my own).  Then got out my permanent ink Sharpies and drew more images (eyes, etc) and started filling in the blank spaces by doodling some zentangles.  Bought some strings and lo and behold, it can actually play music!  I'll be taking this to the festival with me instead of my "good" guitar.  Hope no one laughs at it too much.  What do you think?  Sorry the pics did not show the drawings very well today.
