Think of it this way. The colour of your car doesn't matter and isn't noticed when you're flying down the highway. It only matters when the car is parked in the driveway. Similarly, when you're playing guitar the colour doesn't matter a wit. But when you hang that guitar up, or play for people who will look at you and your guitar, the colour will say something, however subtle, about you. Various qualities will make us like a guitar, ours and the instruments, appearance is a legitimate one.
I say you need that guitar and gut feelings are the only reasons you need to justify it. Frankly, I like tinted translucent finishes. (Heck, Taylor has some nice ones too.) Go for it.
