    I don’t like most mints… However the Musiclily parchment (and probably some other Chinese brands) to me is the perfect mint! It has that more subtle grey/green tinge you sometimes see on vintage guitars.

    If it's a subtle mint, then yes. Sorry, LG phones really saturate the colors.

    This is White, but I tried both Parchment and Light Mint and Mint. I prefer White with Parchment a close second…

    I settled on cream and knocked the shine down a bit w 00000 steel wool. Tried some expensive tortoiseshell, too. It looks better now. The Daphne Blue Tele is the one on the right :)
    Moosie’s Strat looks outstanding as well 31AC9670-BACF-40B1-8F2D-18974119ED6A.png

    I like mint green, but on Daphne it just looks sickly.

    Hi.

    Darn. It’s 6:45 am here, and now all I can think about is getting some mint ice cream.

    Not sure where, but it just became my life mission.

    Looks like it's parchment with an over 2 to 1 margin!

    White pearl is good, too. I have that on my gold Tele.

    If not MOTS, then parchment.

    $0.02 and all that.

    Hi @Billy3 et al.

    Wasn’t kidding. Piled the family in the car (national holiday helped here), drove for about two hours, incurred a ¥7000 traffic violation* and bought Italian style gelato.

    Actually, I let the wife get (choco) mint. I got greedy with rare cheesecake, raspberry and raw chocolate in a fresh made waffle bowl (bottom photo).
