Satin Finish on the ME1
Glossy Finish on the ME2

How about some pics and preferences from you guys....

Here is a ME1 that I bought from 11 Top, eventually sold to Garrett Park Guitars..

Here is my ME2 (picking up this week from Geo and Brian At The Guitar Sanctuary)

I think it is a great color either way, but I've kept mine satin.

I love the look of satin, but I prefer my guitars glossy. I can't seem to bond with satin guitars and I want to badly. I feel so weird!

I love the way they look when they have faded to almost natural with hints of the blue...

I like glossy guitars. No particular reason.

Satin guitars just look like they aren't finished yet (ba-dump-bump).

No, really - they look to me like they aren't done... But they sure play nice. It's a conundrum.

Glossy. Blue is a color I just don't "get" on guitars or cars, but I like pink so what do I know?

I would have said gloss but my satin FBj is the balls......

I love the Satin look. I think it makes them look so classy and like a piece of art.

I GREATLY prefer gloss. It enhances the figure, adds depth, and makes it pop. However, I like the lighter color of faded blue jean with satin, which is why I haven't glossed any of my FBJ ME1s.

I like the satin on the ME I's. It just looks right for them.

12-10-2012, 08:46 PM
JD - you know the right answer is satin...c'mon man.... ;)

I think that faded BJ modern eagle 1 looks outstanding. Not that the other does not, but it just says modern eagle to me.

FBJ=satin...my Dirty100 also has a satin finish that I love....come to think of it one of the best sounding Les Pauls I have ever played wasn't a R series....it was a standard in satin faded tobacco burst...I stupidly sold it....still kick myself for it today.

Honestly still hoping to find another ME1 FBJ with Trem, but I like the wide flames....
Maybe it will appear one day.... :/

The PRS satin finish feels like love. Shiny ain't everything.

Satin for me!

I will have to agree and say satin after just getting my first ME 1. Love the feel of the satin :star:

12-11-2012, 12:15 PM
I normally like GLOSS but that satin one is a real beauty - as others have said, it's something special. :D

12-11-2012, 02:56 PM
Satin, because it's one of the factors that make that run ring like a bell.

12-11-2012, 03:14 PM
Satin all the way. I prefer the look and feel of satin, I love the way it looks badass yet not over the top!

12-12-2012, 08:38 PM

So this is with my iPad it really looks FADED...Blue Jean
