|Rick’s Picks, a Dino-Mite Exhibit at the Burpee Museum of Natural History
(website opens in new window)
Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen and the Burpee Museum of Natural History launched a new exhibit, Rick’s Picks: Rick Nielsen’s Lifelong Affair with Guitar’s and Music, on August 11th, 2012.
AXE HEAVEN has worked with Rick over the years on various miniature guitars, but this year we finished the officially licensed Rick Nielsen Five-Neck Checkered Miniature Guitar Replica.
After having our design team work on samples for this project for a number of years, Rick finally approved the finished product with his blessing.
Watch this video for a closer look at the Rick Nielsen Five-Neck Checkered Miniature Guitar.
Rick signed a number of the miniature guitars for the museum exhibit’s opening night and all proceeds will be going to the Burpee Museum. We asked Dan Roszkowski, a close friend of his, if Rick liked the finished five-neck mini this time and he said, “Rick loves the final product and wouldn’t have signed them if he didn’t.”
Other miniature replicas also commissioned by Rick include:
- Rick Nielsen Checkered Explorer Miniature Guitar Replica Collectible
- Rick Nielsen Uncle Dick Doubleneck Miniature Guitar Replica Collectible
- Rick Nielsen Checkered Flying V Miniature Guitar Replica Collectible
At AXE HEAVEN, we make every mini guitar by hand and take pride in making a product that so many people connect with and love. We love guitars. It’s our passion.
