The Worst Colour/Finish/Detail on a guitar - post them in.

some will disagree, some will say there are worse, but how many will say they love it??

Mick Ronson, terrific chap etc, but this Epi LP "Mick Ronson" is for serious (and colourblind) fans only:

It's on eBay, so the pic won't be around forever (thankfully). What has that wood been stained to? Ebony piping and gold hardware to boot :shock:

The "Marble/Bowling Ball" Strat was not a pretty guitar.

:shock: Competition over, we have a winner. For a major manuf's standard finish, "bowling ball" surely cannot be beaten. Absolutely vile.

BTW, Lee - I saw another "Antigua" on Fleeb, this time grey-black, and noticed that the pickguard was also partly sprayed. Yuck.

Gee, I thought I'd win for sure with the "Rust" finish but 1bass is right. That bowling ball finish is the most obscene amalgam of color I've ever seen on a guitar. Good find bulsara! SB

Ive just had 3 tins of Carlsberg Export (the one the Danes hate to see leave) and i must say the Micky Ronson has a certain appeal.... i think i need to lie down for a while.. :?

Your eyes Lee, they're playing mind games on you. Open up a womens mag and tell me if you find Carmilla Parker Bowles has a "certain appeal"?

Buls.. you made into GNW "And Finally..." ... Whilst we have had some mighty finds, I think most of us would agree that Buls has atleast won heat 1 :)

I think we know the women in magazines that have a "certain appeal" for Lee... staples through their midriff. Mind you, with her money, Camilla's already had that done. Gruesome thought... :shock:

Speaking of gruesome; if you'd had another 7 tinnies, Lee, then retched over a nearby Strat (Gibby-lover that you are :wink: ), you'd have got your own "bowling ball" finish. Adding my own congrats to Buls - "millenial post competition" winner and GNW featured all in the same week. Does life get any better? :)

1. i think the Antigua strat is far more horrid than the Marble Bowling ball.
2. The Mick Ronson has my tongue hanging out.... whats wrong with it? what am i missing?
3. i would love to take Camilla doggy style in the stable, i bet she goes like a train, and im waiting for her to feature in this months FHM.
(8 tins of Export will now never make it back to Denmark)

Well it was no definite winner, just a possible... maybe we have a showdown on the horizon :D

I've taken a second look at the Antigua and it hurts my eyes. I'm not sure if it's just the dodgy photograph or both.

Sorry, the Antigua is a bad idea, but the bowling ball is the product of a sick (literally) mind. OK, found the barmiest guitar. Now, spare a thought for the complete lack of logic that makes some bass players open a wallet. Not, strictly, a 'finish' problem - just barking mad all over. NB, these aren't from the back pages of the catalogue where the kid's toys are - these are high-end, wallet wringers. Step forward Ritter:

and Basslab:

I rest my case (containing a dubious-looking, "Bird's eye Koa" topped eye-acher:


My main bass :shock:
