    Wicked Crazy Fades Thread - I see 2 colors, 3 colors, more?

    PRS has done some insanely awesome fades on many recent PS guitars. If you've got a blindingly awesome fade, or have seen one somewhere, share it here...

    To start, this is one of my all time favs. It belongs I believe to the 'real' 11top dude. Sandstorm Fade done to perfection:

    Love me some fades!!!! Steve's Sandstorm looks like the top of the water behind a boat during sunset.....

    Some of these colors have showed up as one-offs for production, but they originated in PS.

    Frostbite



    Beach Fade



    Green Fade



    Blue Fade



    Purlpe Fade



    Tequila Sunrise

    If you think the top on this one is nice - you should see the back!

    Yes the back is insane too! And that heel cap, etc. - so much attention to detail.

    Lets....take a look... :shock:

    Dude, those aquatic / beach / ocean fades are just luscious. Show her this one too:



    If I was in a beach bar band anywhere (preferably the Caribbean) I would simply have to have an ocean fader.

    And Tim, your Swamp Eagle is pristine!! Love how it fades up into the maple neck. Brilliant!

    The second Frostbite built as seen at the 2010 Experience, Willcutt had the first.

    Not for everyone, but man I love the fades. The heel cap on the Sandstorm is just ridiculous!!

    Do you consider bursts the same as fades?

    For the purposes of this thread, typically no, as bursts originate from the center in a radial fashion, whereas fades can originate from any side/angle and move in a generally linear fashion.

    However, as your PTC custom 'PS' color certainly falls under 'Wicked Crazy', I think we can let it slide :mrgreen:

    Ha thanks - I actually was going to post Dragons Breath and Laguna Glow because while not traditional 1-2-3 fades, there is a lot of subtle fading inside em'.

    Well - since that is a Private Stock guitar, you can spec it left handed just as easily.

    No Private Stock for me just yet!

    I noticed someone bought the guitar since I posted it here. Fess up, people! Who bought it?

    Oh my days, this is good enough to repost! It looks like it should be hanging from a "vintage" leather strap worn over a cream Armani linen suit... I freakin' love it!
