Re: Is the 777 SK difficult to photograph accurately?
Thanks... I'm actually a pretty decent photographer, so I know all the struggles of white balance first hand. I was just trying to find some "truth" to what the old SK should really look like.
I know we aren't supposed to post links to auctions, but there is an 1987 SK 777 on reverb now, seller is Wired Guitarist. The listing goes on about how there is minimal fading, but to me at least, it looks pretty washed out, more bubble gum than anything. The photography on that one is actually pretty decent, so maybe that is the real color, but I'm not sure I would agree with the "minimal fading" claim.
There is also another one on reverb, from someone in LA, but that one looks alot more reddish/orange in most pictures, almost certainly photography issues, because a few of the pictures like the side of the body near the input jack, and the headstock, look much more accurate than the rest of the photos.
Oh well, I guess if I actually had one I could see how hard it actually is to photograph accurately.
