    Your guitar must have very low self confidence if it needs compliments and clothes to go with 'em.:(

    I was just thinking of getting a couple new bowling shirts. They usually go with a Gretsch ... Are they still OK?

    I buy clothes for my guitars IMG_9800.jpeg Version 2.jpeg in a way that compliments and or contrasts in a positive way.

    I stick to belt buckles that are unlikely to scratch (such as a 5.11 Tactical TDU) and then wear a shirt over it anyway. No buckle rash on my watch!

    I also prefer straps with no hardware that could scratch. Even better if they look cool ....

    Right?!
    You don’t need to be a dedicated follower of fashion to look cool.
    T shirt and jeans is the bare minimum and will do quite nicely in most situations.

    Why not? He’s a treasurer or president of a stage hand union chapter in New Hampshire.

    Hell yeah!
    If you know, you KNOW
    and YOU sir, KNOW!

    That immortal question: Beatles or Stones?
    The correct answer is The Kinks!

    No clothing to match my guitars. Most of my playing is done at home now, so I wear whatever I want, usually starting with jeans. When I get free time, I pick up a guitar without worrying about what I'm wearing. If I do get a chance to play out, it's at church, and as the pastor, what I wear depends in what service I'm playing. I sure don't worry about matching the guitar. For me, it's more about matching the guitar to what song I'll be playing.

    Formal situation with dark clothes, maybe a white guitar (a blonde Tele can be very formal and classy looking;)). Other situations where lighter clothes are OK a black guitar (like a black Les Paul Custom) looks great.

    But I recently got this and I'm afraid to ask for suggestions:eek:
