    Alright everyone, I am going to by an elitist! I realized that the Antique Ivory is kind of sh*t. Now here's where I'm stuck. I don't know if I should be the Ebony or the Antique White. Any sugestions?

    Great choice! Color is your choice man. Kind of like a car. Black is gorgeous but harder to keep clean looking and scratches show up. The white is also nice looking, stays cleaner looking and scratches don't show up as much. Totally up to you man.....Whatever you do, buy it quick and give us a review and post pics!!!!!

    Grr, this is such a hard decision. Hmm, I am thinking of getting the ebony and putting gold gibson speed knobs on it. But then again, the Antique White is really nice. Well I do not trust online pics so I'll see them at the store and then decide.

    I always say this but, here it goes..

    Find the wine red one on ebay and get it used. They pop up once a month or so and the color is killer and discontinued! Plus the elitist are one of the only guitars I would get of ebay without batting an eyelid

    Of course I'm partial to the honeyburst. But the wine reds are probably my second choice for beauty. I don't even care for gold hardware but I'd take one of the wine reds...

    I actually really like the faded cherry burst finish...maybe that's because mine is more quilty than striped.

    I agree completely with both statements.

    You're top is one of the coolest I have seen. It makes it more then a typical faded cherry.

    Rock on. I'll have to engineer my schedule to ensure that I'm home when she gets delivered. Fire me that tracking number when you get it!

    It is a sweet looking axe. Had it been a tobacco burst, it'd be sitting here in my house! I think that Pete scored an excellent LP - looks great, plays great, and the neck profile is perfect.

    This black Elitist w/ antique binding is in my local shop - it looks awesome! I'm partial to white - but this is the best looking black custom I've seen from the Elitist line:

    Though I am quite partial to mine, which is white:

    That link that Golden posted is an excellent price on that new white Custom. The black one above is going for about $1100 here at our local shop.

    None in White at the moment. They've got 2 Gold Tops, the Black Custom, and a Faded Cherry +Top Standard. They've sold two Standards, a black Custom, and my White Custom's twin in the past month and a half or so.

    The one on the far right is gone - there is another Gold Top there as well. As I mentioned, there was a white Custom, another black Custom, and another plus top a month or so ago. Scary Pete bought the + top on the far right.
