Great. Yellow started to be my favorite color, along with silver, a little while back. There are many shades of it, as with just about all colors. Lemme tell ya 'bout white....

Is there a tincture of green to your guitar, or is that reflected from nearby objects, like a tree or lawn.

Here's some famous yellow:

The green cast had been noted in another thread with photos of this guitar. I think it must have come from the sunlight filtering through tree leaves.

By my limited understanding of pigment theory, any yellow that is not primary yellow is a little bit orange or a little bit green. I had wanted something a little greener than primary and a little bit more pale (add white) than pure primary yellow. The idea was to get a slightly mellow sun yellow or canary yellow. After learning how much trouble flake yellow is, and since the Custom Shop knew the overall effect I was looking for, I decided that I would go with pretty much whatever the shop came up with. They went with a slightly orange yellow with a little paleness off of pure pigment, and I liked it just fine from the first glimpse. (I would have named the color "Solar Yellow" for Parker code purposes, but the shop uses the name supplied by PPG, and I guess that makes sense to avoid confusion.) Hard to really use the word "mellow," but it is sunnier than a pure pigment would have been with no white in it at all.

And then, Marco, are you with me now, then you could get a Fly that's black with yellow bobbins and knobs and have them together on stage and alternate playing them song to song.

That would freak some people out. Have the yellow one playing the bridge pickup with a real biting tone and the black one a real sweet, thick (chocolatey) tone. Throw in a little surf, some rhumba, I don't know. Hey, it's late. I'm sure I'll generate some more ideas tomorrow.
