    I dig it, but any way we can get something a little closer to this:

    I'm not saying the one you posted is bad, I think it's fucking hot, but just curious on how you feel about going a slight bit more candy/metallic. Though, it's your guit-fiddle and I'm just some asshole on the internet. :lol:

    By the way, great to see the Purple won!

    Alright, I'm diggin' it. I really liked that pink mockup though, even if it wouldn't have been that shade in actuality.
    Maybe something a bit richer, but not like those Charvels. Take that purple back to the dark pit from whence it came. :fawk:

    I just feel like almost every guitar you see these days is either metallic, pearl or trans.. what happened to solid colors like in the 80s? :shred:

    Max's purple looks like venous blood. It's kinda creepy to me...

    Definitely metal though, if that's what you're going for :lol:.

    The one you posted reminds me of a 1989 Carvin DC125 that I had. Pearl Purple. Awesome color. Never should have sold that guitar...

    Can we have the purple drip as an upcharge :D

    The color you have there is pretty cool.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the Charvels were all done with House of Kolor paint. The purple Max pictured is PBC-65 Passion Purple Pearl

    Is there any chance of purple drip? I would pay another $100 or so for that, no problem. Such a great color. If it has to be normal purple, metallic is preferred.

    What about a burst? Dark purple on the outside to a light violet on the inside.Then whitewash the back and sides.
