    I know I'm in the minority on this board because I don't like surf green or other pastel colors for guitars. I especially don't like white guitars. So, yeah. I like gold by itself quite a bit

    Nothing to say about this guitar, except it looks hideous to me.

    Regarding OT and photo - Love it!!!

    Yes the gold is a bit out but it still looks gorgeous.

    My one concern with these models is neck dive, however there are fixable solutions like using a thick shade strap or changing the strap button position.

    Nice

    I loved the VG Baja, one of the fattest necks I've played. I'm a sucker for flake too...

    Sorry. I like Fender's Sea Foam green better, it looks more surf green to me than this does.

    My thoughts exactly. Chrome would have been perfect, and would have brought on some bad GAS.

    I mean come on, the teal/sea foam/surf (whatever color it looks like under whatever light it's under) and gold isn't that bad! I mean look at this penguin! My g5435 (as seen under the penguin) is chrome but I'm considering replacing everything with gold synchro-sonic bridge, gold Cadillac tailpiece, Grover imperial tuners, gold arm rest, and jeweled arrow knobs

    I really liked that stuff and wish they still made it. Great for the Desert Southwest. It had a warm color tone to it, whereas Fuji slide film had more of a cool tone.
    When the African Daisies bloom around the Superstition Mountains in the spring, look out!

    For a minute, I thought it had gold hardware. But then my monitor went out...

    For years and years we used to shoot this stuff along with B/W for archival purposes. The heat and dust always shifted the color though. As this and film in general dwindled we were sending rolls out to Kansas for development. All this work and they end up getting scanned to be published...we're all digital now, even after my Luddite cloud-yellings. When the film was fresh, and the our cameras clean, it was beautimous.

    I'm trying to score the NOS rolls and cameras we they are deaccessioned.

    It's still hard to beat slide film (especially medium format) for capturing the nuances, reflections and general cool detail.
    However, hated using it. Hated that it cost so much during photoshoots. Hated that it took DAYS to see the results and if they sucked you had to do it all over. Hated having to scan the things and then hated what converting them to CMYK did to them. Sometimes it was still worth the effort. During photoshoots now, it's not at all unusual to take 800-1000 pictures. Digital film is cheap! Plus you get to see what's going on right away. Takes a lot of guesswork out of it and it becomes a numbers game, they can't ALL have the model's eyes closed, right?

    This is from a shoot I did Friday.
