1 Proteus 2 years ago Yeah, I had to get one. It's red. Nothing wrong with that, but I don't think it's what I'm looking for. So we're talking ground-up refin here. What do I want? The BeelyBo is one of the few guitars that looks good in practically any color scheme (though I think natural or sunburst would be non-starters), so I'm casting around for The Killer Kombo. I love the creamy white...but mine has chrome hardware and white binding. I also like the black-and-gold look, but mine still has chrome hardware. The BB clearly has a late-50s/early-60s aesthetic, which I think works naturally with automotive schemes; at the time, the industry was moving from two-tones (from pastels to high-drama) to tasteful metallics. Colors from the Gretsch heritage might also be good candidates, but aren't necessary – as long as the choice is something that looks "Gretsch-appropriate." Here's where my thoughts have tended: Bamboo yellow top / copper mist backsidesneck Smoky grey top / metallic violet backsidesneck Anni two-tone smoke green Cape ivory top / metallic Cad green backsidesneck (the colors of my '55 Coupe de Ville) Candy tangerine top / metallic pearl backsidesneck (or vice versa) Anyone got thoughts? Curt's anxious to get started.
