99% of the time, I want to be able to see the wood. There are only a few occasions where I like solid colors. I'm considering a Carvin carved top in Candy Red Metallic in the somewhat distant future because that color is just ballin'.

I'm really into white... but nothing can impress me like a beautiful natural finish!

It really depends on the guitar.

I like white (especially on curvy Fenders), and I like green. Purple and lighter blues are nice too. And I like really bright "Hi-Liter" colours too - the bright yellow and pink that Ibanez are doing on the 25th Anniversary RGs, and the Kawasabi Green that Jackson recently introduced. Jackson's October Pearl orange is nice too... and Reindeer Blue is purest sex. Some gratuitous pics, because I can:













Red is sometimes nice too, but not if it's a sticky transparent wine red with highly figured maple underneath it - that always just looks like an internal organ to me. It's especially bad when Schecter and LTD (and recently Charvel) drown said red in horrible plastic-looking abalone.

Of course, cherry red with mahogany grain under it is just gorgeous, as my Flying V will testify:

I don't have a 7-string any more and I like fat necks and single-coils, come at me.

Earth tones get my vote! They're just so calm and...instrumenty looking.

I love fluorescent finishes. Neon blues, greens, whatever. Flat black makes me want to stomp kittens. Unless its swamp ash.

Too hard to decide. It really does depend on the guitar, though.

any kind of subtle bursts do it for me:
