    I’m usually not into 60’s necks but I love this guitar, it plays so good that I can look past the thin neck.

    I like both sets of plastic, what do you think? :)

    Black. Cream is getting to the point of being overplayed. Looks killer.

    Black. Is this even a real question?

    I'll admit to some partiality in these matters.

    .

    Cream, but reflector hat knobs. Or the amber hat knobs. I dont like 'speed knobs' because they are always too big and coarse looking and turn slower.

    I'm no help because actually I like both. I didn't think I would like the black on the GT, but yours and Who's both look great in black.

    This thread is split almost completely down the middle.

    They both look great but I would lean black. Especially with the diamond headstock is gonna look great.

    Black. This Custom pulls off a top wrap very well too with the chrome hardware.

    Like Who, I'm partial too:

    If you want cream then you need another GT..

    Black on a Custom. Black reflectors to complete the look. I agree that Cream is somewhat over done, though it is right on many, but not this one.
