    i look at their guitars that they post every day and lately there's maybe one ugly one out of the 5 or 6 they post. It's almost like people aren't ordering the gaudiest crap imaginable, and then I see this:

    I have a new Ibanez RG550 Road flare red and that doesn't even come CLOSE to making my eyes hurt as much as that monstrosity. YUCK.

    If it was JUST pink, I could dig it. Those ugly fake LNG pickups and burst just look so off. I wouldn't even wipe my ass with that guitar.

    That is quite something. It's probably even a special finish the buyer paid extra... I have to wonder if he or she is color blind.

    Well hell I wouldn't wipe with it either. Paper has been doing fine for a long time.

    I sprayed a sample neon pink and green burst and nearly puked when I saw the "neon brown" transition between the two colours :barf: I frantically fumbled for my sander to kill the damned thing :frantic:
    Its hilarious to see someone actually went through with it :lol:

    There's just something off about most of their bursts that I see from them recently... it almost looks like a decal that they just paste onto the damn thing. There's close to zero fade to the burst, and the burst finishes in a solid color, which looks off. It makes it seem like there was little artistry in the process.

    Following their Instagram page, I'm often surprised/horrified at what people come up with. Even worse is them pushing it as wonderful and/or as one of their "favorites." Either they have an army of social media reps, or the dude has a different favorite of the day/week every time.

    Not that I think there's anything wrong with liking things I find aesthetically displeasing and/or tacky, but it just solidifies their company image to me as that of a tacky-ass brand.

    Some color and option schemes they post are actually awesome though, but then I look at the design of the guitar itself and.... well, it loses much of its appeal. Not my cup of tea. However, a few exceptions do exist, though they're few and far between.

    Too bad they don't showcase some of their older models as much. I'd LOVE to see some more of those classy DC models.
