    Pictures don’t seem to do it justice though, there’s this video of NAMM EVH booth you can see it better in the background @ 3 minutes and closer @4:14
    Looks nicer than in Pictures

    After seeing the video, the burgundy mist is my vote. I like the black hardware!

    Burgundy mist looks more like a salmon color, I voted purple.

    The burgundy mist has a hair metal appearance to me .
    I’d probably choose that one :D

    You certainly will have to play, if you have a pink paisley '68 Strat' :sneaky:

    I'm leaning towards the burgundy mist. First girlfriend had a Plum Purple Muscle Car, girl broke my heart, so purple I shied away from for a long time. My wife of many joyful years is another purple fanatic, so I guess that all evens out. Get what you want, they both look pretty good. How they play and how they sound with your hands on them really really tells the story.

    Depends if you want to play Smoke on the Water.

    I'm not a fan of that particular Burgundy mist. It's a bit too close to the Hello Kitty end of the spectrum. The purple is rich and intense.

    I don't dislike BM but if I had the choice I'd go purple. I've kind of been wanting a purple strat for quite some time....

    I don't like either one. Both are colors that I'd expect Prince to play. I'm not him.
