#1 Black & White
#2 Blue Sparkle
BTW, hybridrocknroll, that green & silver looks mad fresh!
Of the three you have listed, I'd go B/W. That being said, I would take the Red/Silver like Hybrid's over all but the aged pink.
I am partial to black and white
2 black and white harleys and a black and white tele
so I may be biased, but I pick ....._____&_____!
Blue Sparkle all the way!
I prefer the Black/Dark Gray/Medium Gray/Light Gray/White one. No colours means no worries, as stated above, it will work with any outfit! =) Enjoy it whatever you decide, if you find you have to buy another one you can blame it all on us!
I will warn you (ask any Crook owner) that they are addictive. As soon as you get the 1st one, you already start thinking about the next. It's a viscous, glorious cycle!
Think of it like this: do you want to stand out on stage, or be a bit more subtle? The black/white will be more subtle, where the sparkle finishes say "HEY, check this ish out!" Same with the light blue. Great choices though.
Black & White - aka "Buckocaster"...I got to hold Brad's original prior to a show many years ago...I believe Bill had delivered a special b/w pic to Zac that day (Pittsburgh show at Station Sq.) and they used it under the pickguard for that show...of course the pic was Buck Owens...
My favorite is the classic pink/red paisley, followed by the light blue paisley with binding.
Bill has an updated blue and white... The print you show there is his old one...
Here's his new...
My camera darkened it a bit so it's still primarily light blue with some dark added for depth... Plus it has a hint o' sparkle
I must say that I dig the new light blue sooo much more than v1. It adds so much more depth and character to it. Makes me even more excited to see Bill's retooled relic pink paisley design. They were already spot on, so it must be something to just hammer down that he does the best relic paisley in the world. Great looking axe!
Personally, I like the black and white, VERY cool! But the blue sparkle wins out for me, that is just amazing!!! It makes my mouth water looking at it! BLUE SPARKLE!!!
I´d go with Blue Sparkle. Looks most valuable and elegant.
If it were me, out of those three colors, I would choose blue and white. 2nd black and white.
Now if you're open to more options, surf green paisley looks really cool too.
I can't decide! This is hell! I literally want every one I see. It's the worst decision to make.
I like to stay subtle but I mean come on a paisley finish stands out enough! I'm worried the sparkle might be just too much, if I had chops like paisley and I was putting on as big a production I guess I wouldn't mind all of the attention. As it is i'll probably go black and white.
Keep in mind if it's flashy it may spur you on to play better because you KNOW folks will be checking out the guitar...
Also, you do have the choice to create a new pattern. My Green/Silver was the 1st one of its kind. I liked the green paisley (green is my favorite color) but wasn't a fan of the yellow underneath in the early green ones. I asked if he could do silver (was gonna do black/silver originally) and he said it would take an extra couple months for him to try it to see if he thought it would work. Lo and behold, it turned out a beauty! Interestingly enough, he tried out the side pin-striping on that one as well, and now most new Crooks have pin-striping....
This one definitely!
Blue and white.
