    I can't get into paisley and I know why. When I was eight or so, I had a stomach bug. My family was visiting someone and I was sitting on their sofa staring at this paisley-covered throw pillow. The pattern started to swim around and I puked all over it. Ever since then...

    It's OK.
    It has the wrong tuners, the wrong fingerboard and the wrong bridge, but other than that, it's OK.
    I think I prefer it to the blue or pink ones.

    I like it! I too would prefer a rosewood board but I like it as is also.

    Perfect guitar for a woman wearing black lingerie IMHO.

    If one of those wants to hold my Tele, I'll let her.

    Don't give Fred Rogers ideas! Sometimes life imitates art.

    Love it. To me, it's the fraternal twin to the silverburst. I saw one for sale on CL about two years ago for $300 and I kinda wish I had grabbed it. I love the stark white neck in contrast with the dark finish.

    Weird, the stock photography gives the Silverburst a much warmer tint so the silver compared to the paisley when you look at both.
    But yeah I love them.

    Haha. C'mon. It's not that bad, not like it's CAR or midnight wine. ;)

    If I had one, I'd change the scratchplate to a clear one - 'tis a shame to cover so much paisley up!

    I like it a lot. Lots better than the pink paisleys going around lately.

    There's more mileage in this design; a 'white' version (a mix of the main paisley shape being white, with varying shades of off-white / muted cream for the embellishments could be nice, for a less brash look.

    I'd buy it...then I'd order a Warmouth fatback shortscale conversion neck, strip off the finish and re-fin natural with Tung oil, add a middle pick-up and a tortoise pickguard....and hope that it played as well and sounded as good as my mongrel-caster in my avatar. Other than that, it's just ok.

    By the way, I like playing in tune....I'd keep the bridge.

    Actually, perfect guitar for a woman NOT wearing black lingerie.
