John Lennon debuted his sunburst Epiphone Casino on stage in 1965 during The Beatles' appearance at the New Musical Express Poll Winners concert held at the Empire Pool in Wembley, London. He continued to perform with it on the group’s last ever tour of Germany, Japan, and the USA in 1966 and was John's most frequently used live and studio guitar for the rest of his time in the Beatles. After having the instrument sanded down to a natural finish in 1968, John can still be seen playing it in the promo films for Hey Jude/Revolution, the Rolling Stones Rock'n'Roll Circus and finally in the last ever Beatles live performance in January, 1969 when they played on the rooftop of the Apple building in Saville Row, 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 Lloyd 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.

I designed the print size to fit standard off the shelf frames in the US and Europe in order to save on costs for customers in their respective territories.
The 11.8 x 11.8" print (30 x 30cm including border) is signed with it's own individual limited edition number (1 of only 50) then laid on a sheet of tissue paper before being carefully rolled and placed inside a strong reinforced cardboard tube for shipping purposes. It will fit into a 12" x 12" frame, a 13" x 13" frame and a 14" x 14" depending how big the mount border you prefer (the one illustrated in the room with the lamp would be a 14" x 14" frame, whilst the frame with the smaller mount would fit a 12" x 12" frame.
