    I'd go white if any at all. Shame to cover that up though.....

            I usually prefer for black or tort, but on that one I have to go with white. Awesome finish

                That guitar has a beautiful finish. I don't like either. Have you considered pearloid?

                  black, definitely. it works with the pickup cover, and plays well with the darkened edged of the body. the white conflicts, in my opinion, whereas the black compliments.

                    Just not a Pearloid guy.........I've tried,just not my thing.

                    What ya guys think with the Burn-Burst ?

                    Never actually on fire.........low and slow.
                    Likes my ribs !!!

                    Rounds of lacquer comin' so this finish is gonna pop a bit more.

                      I think it looks great! I like the black p/g better.

                        I prefer black, but really, it's like five tiny screws. You could change the pick guard between sets if you felt like it.

                        I like the burn burst, neck could use a bit more 'character' though.

                          Great burst! I like the black best.

                            Of those choices, black.

                            A tortoise or more parchment-y thing might work too. Just don't think the bright white fits with the wood tones & black p'up.

                            Digging the finish work though
