So, you're good with the phosporescent green J-45 now? 

No, I think If I was given that guitar for free I would sell it for $5.

And its neon green get it right.

If I was as good a guitar player as I am a sax player, I'd get a "Hello Kitty" guitar and rip on it.

Just for fun.

I have a black Hello Kitty.  Bone stock except for straplocks, super mint-y.  I've recorded it a couple times, rehearsed it a bunch, and gigged it a few.

I have always had a thing for TV Yellow, going back a ways, but just one at a time.. It has something to do with the first time I heard a LP TV DC....

My SG-X, below, was a deviation, but it was such a screamer.

I have more with a natural finish than anything else. I just like the wood showing through.

Then I have translucence covered with Green, Blue and Cherry.

In general, I really like almost all bursts ... EXCEPT for green and blue bursts. 

My brother just bought a Gibson "Green Ocean Burst" Les Paul Classic (a Sweetwater exclusive).  I dunno, maybe it will grow on me when I see it in person ...

Don't tell my brother what I said ...

I'm not fond of that particular green 01GT, but to each his/her own.

I avoid greens on stage because when lights reflect off of it onto your skin, it makes you look sick. It's a subliminal thing for the audience's perception, not a personal preference. Reds and pinks are better reflected on your skin.

So, because the forum displays poorly on my android phone, I can't start a new topic.  But this isn't exactly a hijack.   Question:

In the movie "Crossroads" (with Ralph Macchio) he has this Tele:

75746456-5e06-4298-8827-cfee59c4309b-jpe

I originally thought it was "Butterscotch Blonde" but now I'm thinking that might be "Vintage White".   What do you think?  There isn't much info out there about the guitars used for the film. 

Butterscotch Blonde:

Vintage White:

It looks somewhere in between to me.

The bottom picture looks like my Vintage White Tele when it was new in 97.  The middle picture looks like my Vintage White Tele today.

He might be using a White Blonde, which I think mid 80's was in the color range.
