Erin Lareau has created quite the oversized and expensive guitar. Her creation was the winner of the West Hollywood GuitarTown public art exhibition and it's a 10-foot-tall 'Les Paul' covered entirely in Swarovski crystals.

I don't think the guitar is one that could be played on a regular basis, but it would be a pretty amazing thing to have displayed in your home or garden. Erin Lareau is one talented artist to have come up with this oversized creation.

Implications - Ask her about her creation, and Erin Lareau radiates humbleness. "It was a natural for me to create my own version of the iconic Les Paul guitar because I've been so close to the music industry throughout my career, working with Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, and Spinal Tap." The work is sharp. It's no surprise that she has captured the eye (and ear) of many celebs.
