Fashionable Accessories

Click here for AUDIO.



Most people think that fashionable accessories stop at cufflinks and tie bars. In keeping up with my previous post "Electronics as a fashion Statement", I would like to show how music can be fashionable. Music, however, is a very broad category, and I would like to condense that to musical instruments. Many people own hard shell cases for their instuments, which keep them protected but also hidden. I decided to show off my beautiful hollow body guitar and hang it up on the wall, along with some of my other instuments.

I have hung guitars in my room for the past couple years and every time I have met someone new, they have always complimented me on the guitars. Regardless of my musical abilities, I have gained respect as the guitar player. In this case, the look of the guitar is more important than the sound, but I am sure that for all other cases any musician would refuse that argument. Still, this guitar sounds just as amazing as it looks.

Who says that guitars can't be fashion? While many people would argue that fashion = clothes, I would argue what constitutes clothes? If I were to wear nothing but a guitar and jeans, would the guitar be considered clothing? It covers part of my body, looks nice, and just happens to be functional as well. Who says you can't look good while rocking out to some emo music?

no matter how good the guitar looks, dont you think that some element of function should be included in fashion? meaning you'd look pretty ridiculous walking down the street like that in the middle of december. i hope you get frostbite, jameel.

I do agree that a guitar can be considered fashion. Accessories such as jewelry are considered part of an outfit and contribute to the overall success or failure of an outfit. I think a guitar can be considered fashion when paired with a pair of jeans or other traditional clothing item just as a belt can. I would even argue that an Ipod is a fashion piece too.

I'd have to agree that a sweet guitar can be a very effective fashion device. Take Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones for example. Away from his guitar, he looks like a frail, tierd, perhaps worn out man, but once he gets on stage and slings one of his sweet guitars across his chest, he gains sex appeal - he appears youthful and full of energy. (When he starts playing, his youthfulness is undeniable.)
