    Im wanting one of these bad. I had myself convinced I could wait til the orange came out, but the more I think about it, the more the white looks appealing.
    Is GAS bending my sensibilities to its whim?
    Whaddaya folks think? Olympic white or KO Orange?

    Whichever you decide, you'll immediately wish you had the other.

    Trust me. It's hard enough to decide, let alone grabbing up one of each!
    Heh.
    Anyone in here get their white one in yet? Care to post pics?

    Ive seen pics of the white....it's gorgeous.

    Personally, I'm a bigger fan of the white.

    It does look good. Clean and classic. White nitro also ages well, acquiring a nice patina.

    A mint guard would've looked better on the white one, I think.

    I ordered the KO. I have a thing for Fender's oddball finishes. Really looking forward to it.

    I'm looking forward to the reviews on this guitar.

    I would get white, but that is just because I am expecting my luthier to finish my La Cabronita Especial in metallic orange finish.

    I still think I'm going to hold out for the orange. I'll keep you posted.
    Also, we're in the middle of tracking an album. Hopefully I'll be able to pick it up in time to use it on a guitar track for something.
    If so, I'll post it here. It won't be mixed, but at least everyone can hear what it sounds like recorded.

    Hmm, I know Johnny's kinda known for his white jag if anything, but the orange just seems right for an offset.

    I'm partial to the white. I think a mint guard would look great on it, too. Match the body and pickups better.

    Well, I went ahead and reserved one in orange. I'm hearing a couple of weeks from some and May from others. Let's hope it's the former!
