    I'm really tempted by that one. And I really, really, really do not need a fifth Strat.

    And, yet...that one is really tempting.

    AKA "clear coated primer". Showing up here in the USA on sport oriented cars too.

    I really don't see the attraction.

    Ohh that makes sense now! I was kind of wondering why this color felt like it wasn't conventional, it's like a glossy flat grey, it's not making sense for my brain but im kind of diggin

    I think it needs an ebony or rosewood neck.

    It would be interesting to see what different pickguard colors do to the overall look, too. Something tells me that white isn't quite it. Rosewood board with black pickguard could give that sunset a touch of elegance.

    Puts me in mind of paint jobs on model cars my dad used to build when I was very young.

    Coming from a guy with your avatar, I am VERY disappointed.

    I think CCP is a Matt finish, though I could be wrong.

    I could definitely rock a grey Strat. Glossy, not flat.
    Kinda liking OD too lately. Or even Desert Sand.
    But again, gloss finish, not camo style..

    I'm not a fan of fades in general. Thought the DiMeola PRS was fugly, and don't much like most of the ones pictured so far here. But the one in the OP is oddly captivating.

    For somebody else, not me. Like Rodney Dangerfield said: "Looks good on you, though."

    Yep, recently saw a Bentley convertible almost totally Matt black. Looked bloody awful. Apparently there difficult to look after too, don’t let it get wet, bird droppings will kill them because you can’t apply polish……………..

    99% of the time that's just a wrap paint tho...

    It is, but why? Each to their own I suppose, how people spend their money is their choice.

    It’s funny, when I first saw this color, I thought “who the hell would actually like this color”. And here we are.

    Only issue is I have is no options of "your choice of Neck". If I were to purchase I'd put un-tinted Maple necks on both...especially on the Tele. It would make those 3 colors not only pop, but contrast as well...imo.
