Sorry Shane,

Using "religious images" that you have found on guitars, is not acceptable to millions of people. I'm not a fanatic, but I found that very offensive.

 It’s all good, lots of us here are God fearing people & are not disrespectful to any religions? However, everyone is entitled to their opinions, based on their beliefs. :) 

Decorating musical instruments with religious and devotional art is a practice that spans millenia and many different faiths. I occasionally use religious iconography in my builds and have even done custom buids for people to use in their respective music ministries. As long as people are not being deliberately disrespectful I don't have too much of a problem with it.

chronicles 23:5 ESV     4,000 gatekeepers, and 4,000 shall offer praises to the Lord with the instruments that I have made for praise.”

Isaiah 38:20 ESV /    The Lord will save me, and we will play my music on stringed instruments all the days of our lives, at the house of the Lord.

2 Chronicles 7:6 ESV /  The priests stood at their posts; the Levites also, with the instruments for music to the Lord that King David had made for giving thanks to the Lord—for his steadfast love endures forever—whenever David offered praises by their ministry; opposite them the priests sounded trumpets, and all Israel stood.

Psalm 33:3 ESV    Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.


BOOM ,,,  ! ..      And  I aint even religious . ;-)

 

That was a triple ka boom!

Censorship is offensive whether it's censorship of the faithful, the agnostic or the atheist. 

Not looking too censor. You can display any picture or icon of your choosing. I just don't think an image of Jesus and Mary, on a guitar is appropriate. Sister Mary Jean would agree with me :-).

"Not looking too censor. You can display any picture or icon of your choosing."

BEST censorship line EVER!

Rock on Shane. Your guitars and music are as awesome as ever.
