"Great quality coasters. They arrived in padded packaging. Each coaster is identical. They are smooth on top and seem very durable. The image and lyrics are very high resolution.

Size: 10cm x 10cm (3.94” x 3.94”)
Production: Created on robust, high quality, hard wearing, scratch resistant melamine with a high gloss finish that can withstand temperatures of up to 140ºc. The coasters are hand-made ethically in the UK with a sustainably sourced Eucalyptus board base and a non-slip cork backing. “In a world of mass produced, cheaply manufactured coasters, produced on unprotected paper surfaces that begin to stain, scratch, lose their colour and peel in just a matter weeks, Rock’n’Roll Redux coasters are in a completely different league, on a completely different planet. If you don’t believe me, read the reviews.” David Lloyd
Kurt Cobain first used this custom built Sonic Blue Mustang on Nirvana's 'In Utero' tour. It was built under contract in Japan by Scott Zimmerman of FujiGen, as the Fender Custom Shop was unable to make a left-handed Mustang at the time. Cobain made some modifications to guitar, his tech fitting a Gotoh tune-o-matic bridge and installing a Seymour Duncan JB-1 humbucker in the bridge position. "Out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favourite. I’ve only owned two of them" said Cobain in a 1992 interview with Guitar World.
Designed exclusively for John7Arts / Rock'n'Roll Redux by multimedia artist David Lloyd, an alumni of Central Saint Martins School Of Art and the Institute Of Contemporary Arts in London. Employing the Découpe (cut-up) technique in which written text is cut up and rearranged to create a different and perhaps unexpected new narrative, David has employed shards of lyrics to give discerning fans an opportunity to engage in 'discover the songs' beneath a foreground featuring an iconic and classic guitar. The Découpe concept can be traced back to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularised in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs and later employed by David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke. Each unique Rock’n’Roll Redux design ©2020 David Lloyd.
