    What is that, an SX? It's not a bad color. But for that style of instrument, natural would be nicer - IMHO...

  5. I think its pretty cool, but then again I bought a Burnt-Orange MM Sterling when my wife thought it was hideous :)

    Nothing wrong with Lake Placid Blue, it's one of my favorites! Black or natural are good, too. Whatever makes you happy.

    The blue - in person - is not that great. The burst is much nicer and it seems to be a better wood. Feel, sound and weight that is. I have had both in my hands. Did not like the Lake Placid blue on any near as much as the burst one.
  11. get the tobacco 'burst one, i say!

    the blue'd look a lot better w/ tortoise, black pearl or just plain black pick guard.

    It's different from the standard fare - so that's a +

    Way better than the blue, IMO.
