Update... this amp shell has been sold but, I am doing more and am down for commissioned art as well, so… hit me up
Hey guys, here is a new custom painted amp shell I just finished. This particular amp is the “Mohawk Sugar Skull” theme. If you look closely, there are different sugar skulls layered throughout the design as a back ground and for texture and then of course the two mohawk sugar skulls in the front. This shell features gold piping and handle details so, I incorporated some gold into the design to tie it all together. I put in a ton of hours and passion into every art piece because I really love doing it. Besides the basic stencils that I design, hand cut and spray paint, all of the work is hand painted making each piece completely original in every way. I pour my heart into it.
This shell will fit a Friedman BE100, Suhr SL68 and many other amps using a Marshall plexi-type chassis, like a Marshall Super Lead or Super Bass type amp chassis, or similar (kits or builds from Mojo, Metro, etc.)
I am selling this “Mohawk Sugar Skull” shell for 650 plus shipping update.. it’s been sold
As you know custom painted guitars have been around for a long time, music is a very personal experience and custom gear is a visual way to express that, plus it’s completely individual, no one will have that same guitar. After I painted my first custom amp, I realized that this is something that others might want as well, I haven’t seen many custom painted amps around, let alone matching themed cabs as well. So, I plan to change that.
This is the first of a series of one of a kind custom standard Marshall style amp shells. My plan is to do a small series of hand painted amps and see how it goes. I can work with individuals to base the design off of a general direction they are wanting as well as paint amps based off designs that I have created. I am also wanting to paint matching cabs for the amp shells, if one wanted to go all out.
For me, marrying my two passions, music and art, by custom painting guitars, amps, cabinets etc. is like the perfect relationship. I hope this is something that people like and I am looking forward to seeing where it leads.
Please feel free to check out more of my art on my music/artist website www.trisha-lurie.com

In the spirit of Halloween, put away your fake blood for a moment and donate some real, life giving blood to the Red Cross. If you don’t know already the Red Cross is asking for blood, so check out their website and see where you can donate some blood, it’s free, it saves lives and it makes you feel like a little hero. However, if the thought of giving blood has you feeling ghostly, you can send money to the red cross, they need that too http://www.redcross.org/news/article/Sandy-Forces-Cancellation-of-About-300-Blood-Drives
I was up late last night researching management companies and how to get an independent artist page up on iTunes/Ping and the best ways to promote an independent debut album etc. All the while it’s 2am, my kid is fast asleep, I’m eating this giant, delicious, gluten-free cupcake all by myself and my date for the night is my iPad….it was then I realized, two things. One, it’s apparent I live alone since I would never pig out on a cupcake at 2am if anyone was watching and two, I actually have an album that is getting mixed and in a short time I’m going to have a bonafide, debut full on rock album on the market! One that I am proud of and feeling really lucky to have almost finished. If you would have told me, one year ago, that I was going to do a fundraiser to get an album made with amazing musicians like Pete Thorn, Blair Sinta, Jon Button, Erik Eldenius, Mike Ruggirello, Bill Delia and Engineer/mixer like Bob Clearmountain…..I would have not believed you. But, with the support of really dear friends and fans I was able to get enough funding to get started on something I have wanted to do since I was a little girl. Of course this album is costing more than I expected or raised but that is how the cookie crumbles. There is no way I could have done it without Pete though! I am so lucky that he produced, played and co-wrote this thing with me. I couldn’t ask for more and feel completely honored that everyone involved wanted to make this album with me.
Now it’s time for me to make them proud to have done this with me. Also everyone that helped me fund this by pre-ordering the album, shirts, art etc. I want to make you guys proud to have been a part of making this album possible too! My next job is to get really, really good P.R and a real management team behind me to get this shit out there! As soon as its finished getting mixed by Clearmountain and mastered by Ross Nyberg, my goal is to release it and promote it in the best way possible. As we all know, it is hard to be a successful independent or any kind of artist these days. I am open to a label major or independent to take it to the next level and I hope something like that will come to fruition with some good promotion and management.
So, now it’s a whole new game for me…. I’ve got this product, now what
As promised, everyone who donated will be getting the album as soon as it’s finished and before it’s available on the market as well as all the rewards you chose. Please be patient with me as dive into the giant process of fulfilling everyone’s rewards at the same time releasing and promoting an album, oh yeah and playing the roll of a single momma in LA, and coming up with money to pay my bills, haha, I’ve been a busy lady. I really do want everyone that has been a part of making this happen to know how thankful I am! This really has been a dream come true. And to everyone else who is waiting on the album, it will be out as soon as I have a game winning promotion plan Trust me, I can’t wait to launch this thing.
So, that’s it for my album update.. Stay tuned
P.S. If you are or know any amazing, music managers, P.R or any other media outlet that could be helpful to make this a success… please feel free to let me know!
Thanks for your love and support! xo Trisha
