    Aw come on... That matches a deuce and half nicely. Just think, you can throw it on an Army cot and it would blend right in. 'What guitar Sarge!?'

    EDIT: That gave me an idea of what to do with my old foot locker. Build an amp in it.

    I've driven a lot of deuce and a half's in my day, and slept on a cot for months at a time; and none of them had gold anodized parts. :D

    I don't hate it.

    Q: Would I spend my own money on it though? A: Almost certainly no

    If I closed my eyes and played it and like it, I would be neutral on it. Without playing it,... naaaah.

    Hideous.

    I honestly can't think of a worse colour for a Strat than olive drab.

    The clue is in the word "drab".

    OD was the rarest of the custom colors back in the 60s, I think. Nowadays it's a factory color but back then they were by special order only.

    I believe I've only ever seen one vintage Strat in original Olive Drab.

    I'd much prefer a pink Hello Kitty Sherman.
