I like it!
I like it too.
I think it looks killer.
"Nope" is right.
Never understand the dislike for antigua, it looks great.
Looks great, but I liked the Fender stuff too.
It looks well done...liking it will be a matter of personal taste.
I actually dig it and went as far to ask if it could be done on a custom order.
It can, if you all were curious...
I think it's time for an eye check!
I think I could cope with it if it was just the body, but with the burst on the pickguard as well....
Just get something that doesn’t require a pickguard LOL!!! I have two Standard Carve Tops and have thought of getting a third, one with the body and headstock done just like that.
I like how it's repeated in the pickguard, but the colors aren't doing it for me.
Reminds me of flan with the burnt sugar edges.
The Fender Antigua finish reminds me of the greenish yellow stuff found on the yolk of a hard boiled egg.
I don't mind the color so much, it's the pickguard that I really don't like. I think it could look good with something like a tortoise guard.
I actually love Antigua because that's the color of the 1st "Real" electric guitar.
That Suhr color to me isn't Antigua to me because it's not green enough.
It's actually more of a coffee and cream color to me.
Here's my '79 Antigua.
I don’t like that color combo at all on anything. Looks like some parchment paper from the 1700’s
There are a few things that will always be polarizing among guitar players:
1) Fender vs Gibson (even though you can have both)
2) Tubes vs solid state vs modeling
3) Monel strings (more an acoustic thing)
4) Is there such a thing as tone wood with electric guitars
My parents were both heavy smokers and it reminds me of the colors of the 'white' walls in the house I grew up in.
Ever since I saw this finish, as a kid, I thought it looked like hard boiled eggs that went bad after being left out in the sun too long. Nauseating finish, IMO. YMMV.
