This one certainly caught my eye while browsing TM. Just looks so clean.

They have different vibes, IMO. Both look great, though! I voted black ;)

I don’t normally like black guitars, but black on the Revstar looks great.

Stripes on the blue one aren’t wide enough, IMO. The balance is not quite right.

I'd go black but if you removed the blue's pickguard, the double stripe could be quite tasty.

you know people pay good money for unsightly blemishes, dings, artificial crazing and the like!
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Who'd be the psychopath that deliberately ages a new guitar or amp?
