    Colour advice

    I've finally come to sense : I won't sell my AL MM90 as it is a fabulous axe.
    The only thing I dislike about it is its "boring black" colour.

    I've contacted Marty Bell whose reputation has reached Europe for a re-finishing job.

    He's super nice, responsive and helpfull : he sent me a few sparkle colours samples so I could make a definitive choice.

    BUT that didn't help : I just love them all...

    What would you guys choose?

    Number 1 (Gold) and put a tort guard on it (or keep it pearl guard. It'd still be bitchin)

    OR Number 2 (blue) and maybe put chrome covers on the pups.

    1] Congrats for coming to your senses and deciding to keep it!!!


    2] find a local pinstriper and get some bitchin' bright stripes on that hot rod! Personally, I -love- bright green on black... *here's an amp I 'rat-rodded' a few years ago...






    3] Play it till the paint starts to come off.... no more boring!

    Put some stickers with naked ladies on them, it will do the trick and it's cheaper

    Here is a picture of my Silo Special in original Gold Sparkle.



    I've been in the process of changing out the pups to emg's for a very long time, I need to finish this project, it has a different pick guard as well.
