    Seems to be a lot of white burst or fade artist models lately. I love a white guitar but these are way to white for my taste.

    LOL, I thought the first pic was a blueprint; was thinking, "where's the second one?"

    Not my cuppa. I prefer dark fretboards.

    Does no one know the difference between to and too anymore? I see it constantly in all the forums

    The first one I'd skip, I'd gladly take #2 though.
    Worth mentioning the Daybreak Tele - I was so close to ordering this one before they sold out... They literally sold out in a week all over the online stores in Europe. Oh well.

    I played the Daybreak Strat at my local dealer, and it was really nice, but gold hardware lasts about ten seconds in the humid Hawaii environment before it gets ugly.

    At first I thought maybe that was a real f-hole, with the cavity painted white. Would’ve preferred that although still not my cup of tea. (That said, I like seeing designers have some fun.)

    I prefer ugly guitars thanks.

    Too much hand sanitizer these days!
    White bread ruined America!
    Give me grain or give me death!

    They are fine looking instruments, but I rarely include a painted guitar in the "most beautiful" category. Paint is for covering mistakes or ugly grain or cloning for tribute guitars. Not saying a painted guitar can't be beautiful. In my avatar, the purple paint represents a compromise with Mrs. Roadie to release the funds to build it. IMO, beauty generally begins with finely finished natural wood grain.

    I'd take the second one over the first, but don't think I'd buy either. The second with rosewood board and black guard would up it a few notches for me.

    Neither one appeals to me personally - I prefer my guitars a bit more on the dark side...

    Also... what is up with gold hardware? Has that always been a thing? For me, it's either chrome or black.

    But still... nice guitars. :)

    In this case, you could say "two cool", or "too cool", and either would be correct grammar and/or spelling, lol

    The first one goes against everything I’d list as things I like but it is very pretty and I wanted it from the second Troggly unboxed it. I guess it appeals to that minimalist designer in me.

    It might be one that’d make me scared to play it.

    it looks cool pristine and it would looks cool beat to hell but that stuff in between would just be sad.

    Not my cup of tea, personally. I'm more partial to the likes of...
