Re: Need help !!! cannot decide between 2 jcustoms

Tough call, but I'm leaning towards the first one, because I am personally liking darker finishes these days.

Re: Need help !!! cannot decide between 2 jcustoms

Second one probably looks better. I guess it's just the novelty of the fact that I own a guitar in a very similar finish, and like the other one better.

You date a blonde, you want a brunette.

Re: Need help !!! cannot decide between 2 jcustoms

the first one is black onyx right? looks purplish to me.

I like both of em. I just ordered the red spinel 8470. I think you can't go wrong with either one.

Considering the're both gorgeous I'd go for playability and sound,then decide.

If the first really looks that purple, I would definitely choose the second. If that's just the lighting and it's actually trans black, I'd have to see more pics, because I really do like trans black.

Sunburst? Bleh, there's millions of 'em (well, mostly wrapped around Strats and P-Basses I suppose) - I'd go the purple-black any day of the week - I've always loved PRS's Charcoal finish with a passion - just haven't ever actually managed to buy any PRS in that colour!
