Re: Help with desert sun yellow
I've been trying to find a nice Suhr for a while (years rather than months) and haven't managed to find one that's as much fun to play as my JEMs... and Macka, yes the headstock does put me off slightly, you're not alone. As to why folks go on about them, they're the latest "top flight" fad, like PRS have been, like Anderson have been and so on. Don't get me wrong, they're amazing guitars, but they also have the "en vogue" stamp on them at the moment which I think multiplies their popularity somewhat.
As for SonicProvocateur's comment's he might be right, in that the Neon yellow looks a bit "warm" to me, but it's been well over 20 years since some the DYs were new. I can't remember just how "yellow" they actually were, but either of those two colours would look stunning on a top flight superstrat.
