Re: Time to part ways with my Metal Leopard
1. The finsih is ugly (looks cheap and looks faded). It would probably fetch more interests if it were regular graphic reminiscent of those 80s Kramer or Warren DeMartini's Charvel. Plus, in this day and age, leopard finish is very, very cheesy. Who wants to look like a 20-dollar lady of the night on Vegas strip...come on. I reckon the same goes true with Satchel's leopard guitar. But since his band is 80s parody, he's a different case.
2. The golden age of graphic guitar is long gone. 40 something players growing up in the 80s have changed in terms of taste, while 20 somethings have no idea what the heavens a USA Custom is. If it ain't 7 string in black, forget about it.
