OH YEAH it's almost screaming for pin striping, do it! I have a Gumby Green off-set I've been wanting to get done. You may have pushed me over the edge to do it myself.

I'm all for going with some flash but in this this particular case you have that Muddy Waters style which is a really iconic look I'm just a big fan of. I would keep it as is just because it has a great look. I've been tempted by those stripes before but just have not had the right guitar.

There are custom strippers in the area. I haven’t spoken to them yet.
As in table dancers?
Seriously, stripe that sucker. Stripes can be removed although they’ll leave a faint phantom outline depending on how long they stay on.

Totally up to one’s preference, which I of course respect, but it’s a hard no for me. Your guitar looks killer as is. Love the color. I dig the funky knobs too.

Looking at my partscaster a couple days ago. It’s a peach, I love it. Plays good, sounds good. I have some vintage and stock guitars that I wouldn’t dream of striping, but this one maybe. View attachment 984236
My guitar View attachment 984237 similar body with striping.

What do you think?
Stickers on the pick guard are as far as I’ll go.
