Check out Chris' guitar stand...

Chris bought this giant 'Lady of Guadalupe' in July of 2013 at the Tall Cities Music Festival in Midland, Texas. At a recent San Antonio gig he proudly displayed her on stage as a guitar stand. She stands about 3-1/2 ft. and is a sight to behold! She's plaster and handpainted in an American Folk style.
