Searching for signs... literally.

Every time I'm in Austin, I enjoy driving around and looking at the unique signage of various local businesses, signs which are often works of art in steel, paint and neon or bulbs. Las Vegas, of course, has the most epic signage (and even a graveyard for signs of deceased businesses), and I've been impressed with many of the googie-styled artifacts while visiting LA. On the contrary, every time I'm in my hometown, I'm saddened by the way the custom steel signs of the past have given way to illuminated plastic rectangles. What other cities have large numbers of amazing, steel-fashioned, illuminated signs?

Electric Day-Glo Acid Music? Looking for songs that invoke a feeling of hot pink and neon fantasia that isn't largely electronic (analog synth is oky. Moody is okay but upbeat preferred. Bonus points for songs that reference color in the lyrics.

Who played a Pollock like neon guitar in the 80s?

In the 80's, which guitarist played a white guitar daubed with paint splotches and Pollock-like streaks of neon pink and green, among other colors? I recall seeing the guitar (probably in a video), but can't place the guitarist or find any images.
