Since you ask, and purely my own reasons:

If a material looks good, then there's no reason to hide it. Many sins can be covered up by opaque paint... and they often are.

Some stains can be nice, but when I see something where it's obvious, it's like going out with someone who is slathered in self-tanning lotion.

BTW, I like the idea that you don't understand how others see a difference between this...



...and this.



How you'd consider that first one to be a "natural" finish is beyond me....

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

Tough choice.. Desert sun Yellow with a maple board and a black pickguard is amazing, though. Naturals can be great, given the right wood, and so many other colours look good, depending on the guitar.

I'm a huge fan of darker natural bodies (mahogany, walnut, wenge). RGA8's DC800 is a perfect example:


But when it comes to actual paint, I have to go with white. Or purple.

Pink guitars are my favorite, but oddly, I have sold most the pink guitars that I have owned.

I agree with others, it depends on the axe.

Some I like silverburst, others blue/purple/green and on others still I like earth tones.

However, for the life of me I can't decide between quilted vs flamed.

orange... cept none of my guitars are orange...

Ah well one day I shall paint my world and everything in it orange.

Edit: although thinking about guitars I love natural grain showing through with a stain, no sense painting over an awesome bit of wood with gloss, stain is better.

clear gloss? though I usually prefer satin in that case.
