Impossible question: Can you identify this portion of an album cover?
May 8, 2014 2:01 PM   Subscribe

When I launched Upcoming.org in 2003, I clipped this little piece of red texture from a vinyl album cover and used it as the header background. I'm pretty sure that the light bands are guitar strings, and I thought it was a Frank Zappa cover, but I can't find anything that fits. Can you identify it, or am I sunk?

Can't find the album (don't see this on Halloween, no), but I'm pretty sure that the larger light-colored structure to the left shows the pattern of soundboard wood (of a guitar, one might guess). I do not see any strings, though, just some light and shadow play.
