I don't know jack shit about instruments on a technical level though, so it's amusing to see both sides of the argument here. The logical conclusion is that Billy is eccentric, no matter what the question.

goofy indeed. its pretty easy to forget about BC sometimes in terms of his 'skillz'. he's probably the most underrated guitarist of 'our' generation. same way jimmy is an underrated drummer. whether he thinks paint changes sound or note is irrelevant because he could play a cigar box piece of shit thats falling apart and make it sound good. or that piece of twine that you use to tie your christmas tree to your car.

blah blah blah billyzzzzzmakeymesleepynogetguitarpspeak

tend to agree w monuments here. paint color on a guitar has nothing to do with the sound it creates

Pretty funny, at NIN, Trent seems genuinely humbled by the fans

Billy just expects us to be there

Do you view your entire world through the prism of Trent Reznor/ NIN?

Billy is susceptible to magical thinking and pseudoscience like the vast majority of people. Which is ironic in this case considering that he's a guitar virtuoso who doesn't understand mechanistically how a guitar works.

OK so can we look at what colour guitars Billy was using in the gish and SD eras because Billy needs to bring them back.

Ironically, the color of a Big Muff matters a lot.
