Hi everybody,

What do you think of the splatter strats? I think it's very nice that they tried something different, but I don't really like they way they look. It's kind of confusing to my eyes. :confused: What do all of you think?



Kind regards,
Myst and rain

some look decent. others (pictured above) less so. mostly they're kind of a mess, especially to a bunch of ibanez guys who are used to gazing upon art-y swirls.

i do like that each is unique, though, and i imagine at some point in the (very) distant future they'll take on some degree of collectibility.

Looks like Hendrix puked on it. But at least it is something new, and looks like something anyone could pretty easily do, which is cool.

Actually, Darren swirled the "Bowling Ball Strats" long before he ever touched an Ibanez, they were just too stupid to realize what they had. And they couldn't get a machine to do it.

This "splatter" paint ain't new for them either...... I don't recall how long ago it was but they have done these before! Gilk's dead on about Darren and Fender..... Ibanez DNA what????? it was still a dream.

Daaayummmm!! I keep looking and looking through all the 60's strats, I love them to death but they just don't feel right in my hands, too chunky for my little paws, but I still want another one. I sold my 72 Olympic White with the maple board about a year ago.
