I wouldn't buy a tobacco sunburst finish guitar. But you can give me one.
I will openly admit that I avoid any flashy or neon colors. I want the guitar to blend with me and not stick out like a marque sign with flashing neon lights. I might feel different if I could play like Knopfler or something, but I don't so drawing that much attention to my playing is like an average outfielder using a hot pink glove.
The flashier the instrument....the better the playing needs to be.
Uh... if you like those two guitars, I’d say you have fabulous taste.
The only red guitar I ever liked was Chuck Berry's 335.
I don't like red cars, and (exception made for a Ferrari) red guitars.
I recently had really nice red Tele and I just couldn't bond with it.
Different strokes for different folks but the two I wouldn't buy - unless they were super cheap and I could refinish them.
kill it w/ FIRE!
Fire engine red; antigua; neon green, neon yellow, or neon pink ala Ibanez shredders.
I'm fine with most colors, but it must look good on that specific guitar. Having said that, I tend to avoid natural (no color at all just clear coat), and glittery stuff.
Probably the bs Ibanez's that are coming out with multicoloured pickup covers and iridescent bodies.
They look awful and it's an indulgence without purpose.
What, even Tartan?
Not a fan of anything seafoam green, pink, neon or gray. Most any other color is fine, some more than others, but all acceptable.
When I was a high-school kid and my dad took me guitar shopping, I recall drooling over this early 80s Strat variant with a locking trem, black headstock and sort of an iridescent pinkish body with a single bridge humbucker. Total shred machine, and I was in love...but was a little worried about only one pickup. Also, my dad made some remark about dayglo roadkill, and I ended up with a Sammy Hagar-colored, no-pickguard Ibanez Roadstar II with three blade single coils.
Lots of red going on there. It was a solid axe that served me well. I guess red is not a fave, but I would play a red guitar if I came across one that sounded and felt good. Like my buddy’s red ES-339...
A few which all felt strong in my head, but I've got specific exceptions for all of them except black. Black is as much OCD as aesthetic preference. Black guitars are guaranteed swirl marks and finger smudges. Currently lusting over an EB Albert Lee in Black, however.
Gibson Cherry, with the exception of any ES-type. Cherry ES is best ES. But I'm sick to death of that color everywhere else. Red in general except CAR (I've got a G&L Legacy in CAR with matching headstock that's amazing) and sometimes Fiesta types: Pink to Tomato Soup can be fantastic. Fire Engine Red is never.
I would've said green but I've got an asian ASAT in Ash / transparent grass green (I forget the official color) which I love. The MOTS pickguard, on the other hand... I keep meaning to send out for a custom white replacement. But you will not catch me playing a surf, seafoam, sonic or daphne under any circumstances.
I'm not a fan of garish and strange finishes. I tend to like standard solid colours and traditional bursts. I like natural strats like you saw in the 1970s too.
I currently have 2 tobacco bursts, a lemondrop, 2 blacks, a daphne blue, a pink (Hello Kitty strat), an ivory white, 3 reds and an orange.
I have noticed that I avoid green, for some reason. I've had a few and they moved on quickly, and it was the colour that just didn't feel right.
Maybe it's because I live in rural Ireland and having 40 shades of green around me is enough.
Don't really like red. Having said that I do want a red SG. Yeah I guess it depends on the guitar.
BSB and bursts - including Antigua of course. In the past I’ve owned a couple of bursts - and do still own a 2TB P-Bass - but I always get fed up of looking at it.
I used to not want black (because of the fingerprint problem mostly) but then I saw my Elite in Mystic Black with BWB pickguard and maple neck and fell for it — now I’d just avoid a black guitar because I already have one.
I'm not fond of green guitars. Also, no neon guitars of any color. No sparkle guitars. No pink guitars.
Black, dont know why, just not for me.
I'll give a hearty second to anything Day-Glo/Neon. Painted fretboards. Pink in any shade. Antigua. Furniture brown. I think that about covers it, anything else is fair game, even Clownburst if done tastefully.
