    How about solid vs translucent finishes? What sounds more transparent?

    We will find the answers to these and other pressing questions in the following pages...I'm sure of it!:sneaky:

    There are a great many people who believe so.
    I think the blue pigment allows the "dead" wood to breath more easily giving it a more "airy" tone. Of course if you plug in a black lead then all bets are off.;)

    It of course depends on the paint. DuPont colours are noticeably warmer, with a sparkly top end...

    I don't know about blue guitars sounding cleaner. But, my Fiesta Red Strat screams like a red headed tart getting her "O" on.:D

    I had a drummer years ago that also played guitar. He refused to buy ANY black guitar. He felt the guitar companies would use their crappiest woods and cover up the defects with black paint...gotta love me some drummers...

    When you say "had a drummer", do you mean in the biblical sense ?:whistling::whistling:
