    I love anigua. Often thought about a Warmoth antigua build, but I'm poor.

    So an Antigua looks like an Epiphone in black & white?

    Antiguas are cool looking. I never quite wanted to spring for one, but always thought they look pretty cool.

    I think Antigua looks killer with a black guard. With the stock guards, no way, José.

    Another reason could be that perhaps you enjoy eating guacamole dip that's starting to go bad...

    The refrigerator is what use to be called avocado.
    The video is black and white, and Ernest Tubb can hardly carry a tune, don’t understand how he a others I won’t mention by name ever got famous as a singer.

    I don't think they all look green, some seem to be cream with gray around the edges, which might be more like the original finish before ageing.

    Actually the Japanese "reissues" are greener than many 70s examples.

    Mine is actually more grayish (2012 FSR MIM). I'm hoping it ages to green. As for the tort guard mentioned above, mine came with a tort and it just looked wrong; the original Vomitburst guard makes it what it is...

    He was a stylist, and an honest one. The story goes that he used to copy his idol Jimmie Rogers until he had a botched tonsillectomy. Then his yodeling days were over. I seem to remember a quote where Ernest told someone that he'd make more money singing out of tune that you ever will singing in tune or something like that...but I can't find it. But his band in the 60's was hot. Like Little Jimmy Dickens' band in the 50's and Emmy Lou Harris' band in the 70's they pushed the boundaries.
