    All-time best Private Stock color?

    I have had several different PS colors, but I would have to say that Tigers Eye is probably my pick for the "All-time best" color. It certainly has been the most popular for years! Your thoughts?

    I vote for Aqua Violet Glow Smokeburst...even though there's only one...so far.

    Although Tiger Eye and Black Gold are my more "traditional" favorites...

    XXX Faded Indigo. I lifted this pic from Brent. If this top was on a P22 or a McCarty, I'd probably be selling my soul.

    I like white tiger a lot too.



    and frostbite...



    Wait - was I supposed to just pick one??

    Tiger Eye for sure.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Tigers Eye:
    Markie, that finish is totally perfect for that top! I haven't seen a better example of Tiger's Eye.

    I like the variations of Aqua Violet and have been digging the Olive guitars in PSF lately.

    My favorite has to be...STC Gold Sparkle!

    I picked Tigers Eye because it has stood the test of time. It was stunning 15 years ago & it is still stunning today. I'm not so sure some of the newer & wilder stains will stand the test of time. I do not say that to bash any stains, as I certainly have my share of those newer & wilder ones. I have a Faded Violet 305 that is ridiculously cool looking, but I wonder if it will still hold the same luster 10 or 15 years from now. Seems like the "Earth Tones" will always be popular to me.

    As my favorite for today.................... I'm going with Grass Stain

    I hunted this guitar for MONTHS, but could not find it for sale or who bought it!

    FROSTBITE with FLAME Maple Neck! If I ordered it I might put a touch of aged toner on the neck.


    Really like this one too
    Lemon Grass



    And of course Glacier Blue

    Tiger eye is pretty tough to beat if you are going to colour the guitar.
    I am also a fan of a natural finish on wood that is a bit crazy.

    I'd rather see natural wood over any color, if I had to pick a PS color I'd probably choose this:



    over this back:
