    LOL, I like them all pretty much (except orange and pink usually).

    I rue the day someone posts a "show us your transparent finish/traditional sunburst guitars" thread :D

    Just my sad :( little Junior Jet. BUT it will hopefully soon be sporting a new finish of a yet to be decided variety. It might even be multi-colored, including some girlie pink, so I can post it on all the different guitar color posts. Good chance there will be some new pots and Fralin mini-hums also. So it will no longer be sad because it might end up the most expensive $100 guitar on the planet.:cool: IMG_20181013_213352.jpg IMG_20181013_213428.jpg

    Sigh... all this thread does is make me wish I had the money for the two Rics and Duo Jet I'm lusting after.

    Ah well, they told me as a kid to save my paper route money... but saving and waiting is a drag. Still, better than financing in my opinion. Or just more responsible? I dunno. :)

    Well, as of today, thru a trade, i’m the owner of a (for now) useless Squier Strat in black.
    Gonna be fun turning this into something usable that I can never hope to break even on ;) Luckily, i’ll wanna keep it after I’m thru fixing her up.

    I had one - a G5435TLH - now sold for many years :

    [​IMG]

    She had been advantageously replaced by my G5220TLH-DCM in late 2018.

    In fact, I don't like too much Black guitars... One of the few exception would be the Gretsch Silver Falcon.

    A+!

    Your cat is (so nice and) cool, calebaaron666. None of my cats at home would stand near a guitar on an amp, even unplugged ! :eek:

    A+!

    Timely thread, I just put these up this past weekend using some new wall hangers the wife got me for Christmas. Not the greatest pic, but looks ok I think - the wall 'o' black guitars!

    [​IMG]

    btw, the other side of the room is the wall 'o' blondes! LoL!

    My first Gretsch. I came here for a case, wound up with an addictive lifestyle.

    Oh yes, that took some nerves to remove ‘em then hand paint in black nitro and polish up again.... then to realise it looked flippin great before and have to find some sticky jewels from the stationers!
    The tank badge was meant for a Black Shadow according to the seller.
    I got a pair, buggered up the first one mind you, and the wiggler is a Harley clutch lever.

    ......and i drilled the black dot markers out and put in red jewels hoping they’d be easier to see at gigs..... oh no, i just stick masking tape down the neck with big marker dots on now!!!!
