Who is Donnie HUNT ?

We all know about those (ultra) rare JS Donnie Hunt models. A brief overview on the web shows no hit other than those in connection with JS models. Was Donnie Hunt only a painter employed by Ibanez for the JS or is he an artist who makes ordinary paintings (not necessary for Ibanez) ?

Donnie Hunt was a San Francisco-based artist that Joe had befriended in the late 80's/early 90's. I'm sure Rich will know more of the specifics, but no- he was not only employed by Ibanez.

A quick, simple Google search using "Donnie Hunt, artist" as a topic yielded this little blurb:

Donnie was working at Macy's doing window displays, Rubina also worked at Macy's, they became friends which is also how Joe came into the equation. Donnie was always an artist by night and working a day job to make a living. There's a skyscraper in San Fran that has over 300 paintings hanging on it's walls, the owner of the building was a big fan of DH's work [and I believe another personal friend] but DH worked in all kinds of medium, from fashion, to sculpture, to the fine and decorative arts.

Re: Who is Donnie HUNT ?

I have a rare jacket that Donnie Painted for me around 1984. I was a roommate of Donnie when he first started working with Joe Satriani. I Believe he made Joe a similar jacket and Mick Jagger a vest. I have several other things Donnie made for me and am willing to sell the jacket. If you are interested let me know and I can send you photos of the jacket.
