Rock On 2017.. We're ready for you!



'White collar conservative flashin down the street, pointing that plastic finger at me,
they all assume that my kind will drop and die, but I'm gonna wave my freak flag high'
 Jimi Hendrix..
  
Seen on the wall of The Acoustic Inn, Perth's only 'dedicated acoustic guitar store', next door to vintage guitar store The Rock Inn on Beaufort Street Mount Lawley. Super cool mural painted by Bolivian artist Pablito Ruiz, (Arte de Raiz - Pablo Ruiz Arroyo). Four of the greatest rock guitarists Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970), B.B. King (1925-2015), Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) and Jimmy Page. Pablito Ruiz aka Pablitosomething finds his inspiration 'in everyday life and dreams'. How about a bit of classic Hendrix and Page to play us out.. go on crank up the volume :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. could there even be a more apt mural for this 'all about guitars' position!

  5. Great mural. I'm surprised the shop and the artist chose guitarist who seldom (if ever) played acoustic guitar. Great guitarists none the less though.

  11. Now that is a wonderful mural. I also love that Hendrix quote. In fact, given our current political environment and I think may adopt that attitude and run with it.

  15. Stunning artwork but:
    Four electric guitarists next to the Acoustic Inn? Very odd. Especially as Tommy Emmanuel (an Australian) is one of the finest acoustic guitarists in the world.

  16. Cool mural! (I'll take the melodious blues sound of B.B. King over Jimmy Page any day.)

  24. Now that's a way to attract people into your store! Selling your wares should always be this vibrant and enticing huh? Perhaps I should go and find some guys to come and paint the side of my storage warehouse with something cool like this too…
