String theory: Evergreen resident turns guitars into colorful works of art

-A A +A
By Vicky Gits

While on hiatus from a career as a commercial real estate developer, Bill Valaika of Evergreen is using the down time to embellish guitars that are being auctioned off for worthy causes.
Using a secret-formula glue and thousands of Swarovski crystals, Valaika turns a plain guitar face into a colorful, flaming logo light show.
“It’s unbelievable to see on stage, Valaika said. “The crowd loves it.”
Each guitar takes 40 hours to produce and is worth about $2,000 in materials.
