    Doesn’t that color scream modern bridge, though? Ain’t nothing vintage about it.

    I know what you mean but.....

    when those bold colours were popularised on cars and home appliances, vintage bridges were just- bridges. :)

    All I can say is, if you’re gonna play a guitar that color, you'd better not suck.

    Did Rutherford know that?

    Plutonium yellow would be a good color name.

    I like it. Don't think I'd buy it, but I'd sure take one and play it.
