Purple Crackle???

Postby musicman61554 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 7:32 pm

Are there any pics of a nice deep purple crackle yet??? Really thinking of getting an 8 string Osiris in a crackle finish but have only seen yellow, pink, green, blue, orange and red.

If going purple, I'd advise grape jelly over the trans purple color. Trans purple will be dark depending on the wood applied, but even flame, or especially quilt maple can be dark like a Charms lollipop - depending on how the light reflects thru it.
My purple pix are typically bright due to flash used.

Here are some Bolt shots of purple over alder.

Not sure how good an example this may be, but its my purple quilt top, with an attempt at a (bright) daylight pic, and its on an angle. The back is purple on mahog.

I've love a black-crackle-on-chrome finish, i think. On...something with rounded body sides. An LB75, perhaps?

Yes I like the grape jelly color. I really wish we had a generator to see all of these beautiful finishes, There are soooooo many to choose from.

Thanx. I'm just glad Fender makes a matching moto pick. :lol: :twisted:
