Foxy Lady Project is a pictures book featuring 60 legendary guitars! Nothing new there, we’ve already seen loads of books featuring even more guitars. Yeah, right! But this book features actual size guitars pics. Yeah, Foxy Lady Project is 47 centimters wide, and above 1 meter height!!

* A-wai was obviously more awake than I was: the first 3 copies will be auction, the 27 following copies will be sold at 1300€ and the 305 left copies of the limited edition will cost.
