I'd like to see a pic, in normal settings, of one of these. Every pic I see from online music stores or from Peavey is either REALLY violet or so dark you can hardly see it. I think I like this color, but I'd like to know what it really looks like. I was considering the transparent black, but from more than a few feet away, and especially in a dark smoky bar, it just looks black. The purple would seem to make the pattern stand out more; I just don't want something too gaudy. If they really look like the one below, I'm definitely getting it. Thanks!
