Whenever I see selective colour something within me does a little backflip. I see it as a heart within my heart which is devoted to loving one thing and one thing only; selective colour, and whenever it sees selective colour it runs around in circles going "Weeeeeeeeee!" in a high pitched voice. I have a vivid imagination. I must have left a couple of dozen comments on pictures containing this most glorious of techniques since I got here, and everytime I mention how much I love it.

But I never seem to use selective colour, do I?

Similarly, I love my guitar. Between them, the internet and my guitar are probably supporting what's left of my sanity, holding it back from that abyss of demented swirling colours that is madness. Honestly, I get so bored sometimes that without my guitar (which I play discordantly and clumsily, but lovingly and often... um... ly) I would probably be a gibbering wreck by now.

Combining these two things seemed like the most natural thing in the world to me, when I thought of it, and it took about 5 minutes in camera and the same in photoshop. So it was obvious, and it was easy.

This all poses the question: Why haven't I done this before?

Nice guitar man!
Also, what have you done to the D and G parts of the pickups?
(might be a passive thing, I have actives myself)

It definitely looks like an Ibanez RG. As for the pickups, I think he's raised the polepieces. This gives it a thinner tone, somewhat approximating a single coil.

I too love selective colour, and I also love guitars :heart: :heart: (my Stratocaster is my baabyyyy :iconawwloveplz: )
This is an awesome photo- the electric-green pick just stands OUT like "ALLO!!! HERE I AM 8D" and the guitar just lays there all dark and cool-looking.
