David Bonvillain, a renowned artist and craftsman, skillfully transformed a guitar for the legendary musician Steve Vai, which has now taken center stage during Vai's U.S. tour. Bonvillain's artistic vision came to life with meticulous attention to detail, as he employed Tamco Paint's Violette Candy Concentrate, expertly layered over a base of Slick Silver Metallic. To ensure a flawless finish, he utilized the HC2104 High Solids Clearcoat and the HC9500 Hi-Speed Impact 30 Min Clearcoat for flow coats, enhancing the guitar's overall aesthetic. Furthermore, Bonvillain employed the HC895 Intercoat and Clearcoat as the candy carrier, resulting in a stunning and vibrant instrument that not only sounds exceptional but also stands as a true work of art.
