    Silver and Torte: Strangely Appealing!

    I owned this lovely 2010 lefty SR5 for a few years and then foolishly traded it away last year. She came back to me in another trade deal this weekend and I decided to replace the Black Pearl guard with a new factory Torte one I had on hand. My wife thinks its a hideous color combo but I like it! Love to hear some opinions.





    1. Trans Gold SR5, (Alnico)
    2. Trans Orange SR5, (Ceramic)
    3. Black SR5 (Alnico)
    4. Gremlin Green SR5 (Ceramic)
    5. Trans Green SR5 (Ceramic)
    6. True Gold Bongo 5 H with Torte
    7. Trans Red Sterling 4 Fretless
    8. Blue Dawn LE SR4
    9. Black Cherry Burst SR4

    I think it's incredibly appealing!!!
    PG look like an extension of the fretboard in a cool way.

    I'll give that a "NICE!!!"
