    My 2004 purple hot rod photographs blue, even though in person, it appears purple. Something about how the human eye sees purple.

    My 2003 SHP “fluctuates” as well! When I took it to my tech recently he wrote “blue” on my receipt, so you are not alone On an unrelated note, I had him install a TV Classic Plus in the bridge and a Setzer sig in the neck. Best pickup combination I’ve had in a Gretsch IMG_1318.JPG IMG_1318.JPG

    I really want one in panther pink with black interior. But it does not look like they are going to make it. Probably because the rights to the pink panther to expensive.

    Yes, that is a very cool color. One time only run on them back in '1o IIRC. I may have very well ordered it rather than my B5 if it was offered with the white interior, but it wasn't and I'm more than happy with the B5 paint........love it more every day!

    Why do car colours work so well on a guitars? Not talking bursts obviously allthough...they might.

    They are both "works of art" that can look so good in a crazy color.

    Nope they have never run panther pink in the new challenger. 2010 they had a fuchsia pink. Not the same color as the 70 panther pink.

    Yes, I’ve seen those on guitars as well. I was really thinking classic burst starting from black. :)

    I actually took a class with gene winfield around 12 to 13 years ago. He was great. The class was ok but keep in mind I did stuff at my job most metal workers only dream of, but i did enjoy the pinstripe class. I got to see the SUX6000 from Robocop out in the junk car lot and some of his other works. Love those old merc tail draggers and a nice winfield fade on them.

    Yes i would love to get me a jet in Inca Gold and black adorned in silver and turquoise like my 2005 Tbird. A guitar and car to match. Maybe a tbird on the guitar as well. But thats never going to happen.

    Classic Plus bridge and Setzer Sig Neck - love this combination and it’s what I have in my Hot Rod and my SSLVO.
