Hello UG

Has anyone noticed that about half of all guitars are black? I agree that black is universal and looks good anywhere, but don't you ever get just a wee bit bored of these all-black "gothic" and "emo" looking guitars? I know I do.

Other colours are available, but no-one seems to care.

JOIN THE LEGION OF COLOURFUL GUITARS!
I have an Ibanez GSA60 in "butterscotch". This isn't my own, but it's a stock photo.


POST HERE IF YOU ARE A PROUD OWNER OF A COLOURFUL GUITAR
Or if you prefer bright colours to all-black.

That Ibanez is the most 80's thing ever
I guess then you've not seen a Kramer Beretta in Bubblegum Pink Glitter finish The only way that could get any more 80's is if it had a mullet wig on the headstock.

Anyhoo. Yes, more colourful guitars! There is nothing worse than an all-black guitar.

well pardon me if my squier custom telecaster is emo or gothic, but they don't do any other finishes.

On the note of colourful guitars, i like contrast more than colour. I have 2 black guitars with white pickguards, they look nice. I do have a metallic green fender strat though
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I didn't mean that EVERYTHING black is "emo" or "gothic". Black and white looks ok on some guitars. Black with gold hardware and some white highlights, like binding, is good, too.

I was referring to stuff like this



That last one isn't emo at all. I guess you could say it's FOCKING METAL. But I prefer bright colours, or contrasting ones, to all-black.

If you don't like them, don't post.
You mature bastard

My guitar is black but with gold hardware, so it's not goth or emo.

I hate that my strat is black. I feel like such an idiot; I could have gotten several other colors, but for some reason I chose black.

I would love to have a bright red strat or something.

same here. I have a danelectro DC-12 and a Ibanez Jet King II i like retro looking guitars.

they are both black with a white pickguard. contrast > colour imo.
