Without exception, these last two pages are scraping the bottom of the synth barrel ...

A shocking yellow Q ... ??? Sexy ... ??? And some of this other redheaded stepsynths ... ?!?!? :shock:

This is a sexiest thread ... Not a highschool yearbook ...

I don't mind yellow, but the Q doesn't do it for me either.
Whilst on the topic of misguided sexy.. I've always been fascinated by your avatar.. I too think Scarlett J is a total fox, but that's the worst pic of her i've ever seen... what's with her hair? :?:

Preach it synth brother!

This can't be beat in the looks department IMO, to say it looks classy doesn't even come close.

so we have different tases in what gear should look like.. big deal.
for the record, I wouldn't say there is such a thing as a "sexy" synth anyway, I just find the Q a really cool looking piece of gear.

so, let's up this a bit: what are the criteria, you'd say, to call a synth "sexy" in the first place?

Hmmm. I don't think that type of wood was originally there, it must be refurbished.

Of course, a beautiful synth.

Well, I think it's much the same as with chicks, a sexy chick isn't neccesearly beautiful and vice versa.
We all know how a "sexy" woman looks like from the magazines.

I would say that a Macbeth M5 is more beautiful than sexy, and I think the term "sexy" maybe is a more commercial word...
A synthesizer will be for you what you want it to be...
