During our SEMA Kick-Off Party here at Hogs & Heifers on November 1, 2021, Hogs Owner, Michelle Dell, received a very special gift from a very special guy. “The PAINTMASTER”, Russ Gerner, surprised Michelle with a Custom Painted Blue-Tooth Guitar that is a true work of art. Russ depicted the front of the Hogs & Heifers Saloon with the official logo, the Hogs Ave. & Heifers St. Street Signs, the Welcome to Fabulous DOWNTOWN Las Vegas sign and a portrait of Michelle right on the front of the guitar. Hogs & Heifers was painted on the neck of the guitar and DELL was painted on the Headstock. No other way to say it…. IT’S FREAKIN AMAZING.
