    That's easy - no.
    Check out pics of EC with a plain white Strat to see why.

    it's only "best" if "you" like it better than any other finish you have seen. Best is only as anything relates to your impression of whatever it is.

    That one was Crash 2, which didn't do much for me. I like Crash 1 and 3 though.

    They all just sort of look like Crash 1/2...

    To a degree, but 1 and 3 have more straight edged designs whereas 2 is very swirly, which does something unflattering to the contours of a start.

    I dig wild paint because it makes the guitar unique.

    Yeah... I'm currently in a dispute with the insurance company about both of those. Apparently I shouldn't have written "Totally off my face when I found the spray cans" in any of the boxes.

    I love painted guitars, but these ones seem a little too forced to me. Plenty of clashing colours but short on inspiration. It's not that I hate them, but they just make me shrug my shoulders. Now Clapton's SG when he was in Cream, that's another matter.
