The enamel medallion embedded in the guitar was originally a lapel pin that I got many years ago in Spokane, Wa., for participating in an art exhibition at what was called the Cheney Cowles Museum.   There were a couple of local artists there (Les LePere and Ken Cory) who dubbed themselves the "Pencil Brothers" and they produced the pins.   I knew them both - Ken has since passed away but here's Les's website:   http://pencilfarmstudio.com/

Not a lot of hidden meaning there.  Les likes drawing and painting silly things:  bones, dog tongues, big pencils, etc...   Looks better in the guitar rather than pinned to a shirt.
