Bad taste
« on: March 19, 2008, 02:03:02 PM »
This is the one that causes all other guitars to leave a bad taste in my mouth.  No fancy graphics or unique paint jobs (I didn't even wipe off the finger prints).  Just plain Italian Plum .  Whenever I have played out with it, others have been drawn to it like bees to honey.  Then they instinctively justify their guitars while their envy grows.  I feel bad for them, but there is a cure.

Thanks guys.  I really like the color as well.  It is very rich without being overwhelming.  I hate it when people say it is purple.  Drives me nuts!  Although I have nothing against purple (a well done purple burst on flame can be a very cool thing if the center doesn't hint at pink), purple is brighter and more "direct."  This guitar is hard to photograph since direct shots make it brighter than it is.  

Parker did a fantastic job developing that color.  Parker also needs to bring back that deep red color that they used to have.
