This photograph was taken in Brooklyn, New York of NYC’s sInger/songwriter, Cindy Thrall. I was introduced to Cindy a month before the shoot, and she immediately inspired me to think outside the box. Finding the perfect location was the most critical part of the shoot. We did not want a typical Fender Stratocaster for Cindy. We built this guitar specifically for her to represent her music and attitude on stage. This is Cindy at home after one of her concerts.
