    I’m a huge Van Gogh fan and have multiple copies of The Starry Night around my home. Always room for one more right?

    no hate. looks good. i mean, not the same as having van gogh paint a guitar just for you, but it's as reasonable a thing to do as any other pictorial pickguard... and it goes well with the body.

    I love the painting as a whole painting…not so much as a pickguard.

    I don't hate it. I want the rest of the guitar to be painted the same way so it looks more....better lol

    I think Munch's Starry Night would go better with that body.

    Van Gogh’s will be better served on a shell pink or Oly White body...

    I’ll give it a 5 on the hate scale. I’ve seen worse but…as long as you like it. It’s cool.

    No hate here either. in fact I kinda like it. (Altho I am going have that song stuck in my head now thanks! LOL)
    Anyway if you like Van Gogh its your guitar then go for it, God bless ya! the color of the strat body is a perfect fit too. Personally, I'd love to find a Jimi Pick guard but thats my thing

    Hideous.

    As a painting - fine.

    As a scratch plate - awful.

    It just denigrates the art.
