In case you’re not familiar with the name Andrew James Somers–better known as Andy Summers–he’s an accomplished, Grammy-winning musician that’s the former guitarist of The Police. He’s also a renowned photographer who has displayed works at the likes of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Beaux Arts Gallery and Milk Gallery, among others. It should come as no surprise that Summers chose to collaborate with two of the biggest names in the business–Fender and Leica–to create limited-edition pairs of his favorite instrument.s The Fender Custom Shop crafted a custom Monochrome Strat emblazoned with Summers’ pictures on both the head and the body. Leica did something similar with the Leica M Monochrom “Signature” by Andy Summers. When asked about the pair, Summers had this to say–“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to work with two leading producers of two fundamental instruments I hold close to my heart, Leica Camera and Fender. After all these years of being obsessed with photography and the guitar, I now have the two things together for the first time.” Limited to just 50 examples worldwide, Summers’ M Monochrom “Signature” set is on sale now at Leica retailers for $14,995, and the Custom Shop Monochrome Andy Summers Strat is available through Fender for $12,500.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
