    No love here for either. The top albino looks like a 3D printed guitar, too monochrome for me. The bottom one with a rosewood or ebony board might get my attention though.

    Not a fan of either. I'd take them for free.

    different strokes. I'm happy that there's people that like those guitars, though. That kind of elegance is above my pay grade...seems like they'd fit in for a band in one of the movies from the 30's, with a jazz band in the big city?

    Albert Collins could rip up a nice "Frosty" on one of those!

    That’s the beauty of taste. Completely subjective.

    I like Daphne Blue, Sonic Blue, light blue colors..

    Heck, others hate it. I don’t care. I play it and it makes me happy.

    If you like it, that’s essential and ultimately matters most at the the of the day.

    BTW, the guitars OP posted is different but I wouldn’t mind playing/owning either.

    Top one is called Siren something something from Japan, named for a J-pop artist.
    I thought it might belong to Prince.

    No idea abt the second one.
    It does not appeal to me like the Siren (fake f-hole and all)

    Peace - Deeve

    I love white guitars but the first one looks plastic. Like a 3-D print out. I also don't get the fake looking "F" hole.

    The second? Take away ALL the gold hardware (I can't stand gold hardware) and change the pick guard and I'd like love it.

    That's not a Tele. It's a Gretsch-o-master-caster.

    The all white one makes for a beautiful image, but I might feel weird playing it.

    But I'd be happy to try.

    I like that first one a lot, though I first mistook it for a schematic on paper. I have 3 white guitars and it is always a struggle not to paint the next one white too. Forced myself to go dark blue on the current one.
