I like the tint on the binding on the MSC quite a bit. It'd look nice with the Orange Glow Smokeburst most likely. However, I'm not sure it would look as good on the McCarty Glow that you have incoming, since the guitar's color is less yellow. I do agree with you about the Faded McCarty Burst; they did a beautiful job with it. The tints evoke that classic LP vibe, but honestly, they look a bit more like they glow from the inside, and I think even cooler. I'm gonna hang onto the HXDA. I know, I'm wishy-washy. It's such a great amp, though. So at least that part of my life is settled. Everything else? Not so much. LOL!!
