Recommended Posts

On my monthly trawl around the inter web thingy for a Kristofferen SJ

Ended up on the Wildwood site and saw these J45 in snot green

What the hell is going on?

Nice

 

So we have

the aforementioned Snot Green. (Olive)

 

Neo- Pee Green

 

Entrails Pink

 

Tourniquet Blue

 

And WTF is that Burst. Is that what an exploded Lizard is meant to look like

 

I was always told that guitar makers used the best grain for natural finish so some of these must be made of cardboard

 

Just my crappy opinion

I’m sure some love these finishes

 

Need to book with “Specsavers”

 

Anyone selling a KK SJ?

If you look up to buy those colored ones many are in Japan.

There will always be a market for "different." People are buying these things. I can see an olive green j45 coming in handy for a regular martini bar gig.

I suspect that Gibson is trying to market to millenials with the new colors to reach new upcoming millennial age players. Objectively, that is not all that bad of an idea, as long as they also keep the standard and historical natural and sunburst finishes.

 

Just my two cents.

Denim blue makes me think of Cat Stevens, oh very young. "Fading up to the sky and though you think they'll last forever you know they never will and the patches make the goodbye harder still". Oh my beautiful youth, where did it go?

I don't know, but it probably goes nicely with nasal discharge during sinus infections

 

 

Good point, Kid. Think about it-----during cold season, if a big glob of snot drips from our nose onto the guitar, the audience won't see it on the guitar and they'll wonder if they seen anything at all come out of our nose.
