Now back to color. Sometimes the color can make you think of a specific company, or even guitar model. I know when I see Tobacco Sunburst I think of Fender. When I see an orange burst or "Fireglo" finish I think of Rickenbacker. When I see a solid orange guitar I think of a Chet Atkins or Brian Setzer model Gretsch. You can even associate color with a musician. Eric Clapton is known for playing "Blackie" his black Fender Stratocaster, Angus Young from AC/DC is known for playing a cherry red Gibson SG, and Eddie Van Halen has is own unique criss cross Jackson Pollock-esque design.
The next time you walk in to Sylvan, or any other music store for that matter, take note of the array of body colors, hardware finishes and pickguard colors. You'll realize that when it comes to color combinations, the sky (blue) is the limit.
