  • Candy Apple Red Strat

    So I have been GASn for a Strat, and at the same time I noticed I dont have a red guitar. So with that said, is CAR similiar to a metallic finish? And I would want to make it unique, so how would a red mirrored PG look with white accesories? Or what would recommend other than a white PG?

        I changed my plain white out for a pearl white:



        I really like the white against the red though, plain or pearl.

          Candy Apple Red is, in fact, metallic. The pearloid isn't bad, but I don't personally really like anything but bright white, mint, or anodized gold.

            Seeing this pic makes me think red mirrored would look cool, since it is metallic like.

                  no pearl or tort or gold pickguards for me. give me white or maybe mint green on a CAR strat.

                    i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. "It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.

                        Yeah... mint guard with cream plastics would be the direction I'd go.

                        no pearl or tort or gold pickguards for me. give me white or maybe mint green on a CAR strat.

                          I had this one a while back... by far the worst guitar I've ever owned, but it looked like a million bucks!

                              To me, anodized gold looks like someone forgot to peel off the protective brown paper on the pickguard.
