    I've got a 2004 G6120SHP, that really looks blue. Did this guitar start out as a purple guitar, as indicated by the P? I figured that they sprayed blue over purple, kind of like they do gold under red for candy apple red. I used to own a purple Setzer Hotrod that looked totally different. Also, does this guitar have a 10" radius? I've got a Compton bridge with a 10" raduis sitting in a drawer.

    10" radius on a 2004 Hot Rod. It was available in purple and regal blue. That looks purple to me.

    Just different lighting will make a huge difference in how it looks. I worked stage lighting often. The color temperature varies a lot with different sources.

    And, yeah, that looks purple to me, too.

    Not that that's a bad thing.

    Thanks, I can see the purple hue. The one that I owned before looked a lot more purple.

    Does it color shift when you hold it against your body? I'm just sayin'...

    More violet than the first picture. I am suprised the guitar industry doesnt do those early 2000 paints that change color depending on the light. 2006 mustang comes to mind. A freind of mine owned one it was awesome.

    Nice PCP, but I went with the B5 Blue :) "Hot Rod" guitars and cars with some great colors!
