I voted black. Mick Jones of the Clash couldn't make up his mind:

Mick and Steve Jones, Izzy, Brad Avery, John Sykes, Randy, Mike Ness.

I voted black because that was my first love. But I love and own both. Both Epis, an Elitist in Black and a Limited Edition in Aged White.

personally I would take white because I have enough black guitars and I find them to look a bit boring...

imagery to utilize for an decision:

white is all color radiating out in its' purest form...

where as, black is the void that gives birth to the note itself...

Without a doubt....for me, I like the White Customs better.

I have a '95 Alpine White Studio that has yellowed very nicely.

They both look great, but I'd definitely take a white one over black. :dude:

O ordered my dream custom(axcess) last year and it wasn't even a thought of white. Actually, it was black, gold or wine red. I do like the look of an aged white/cream LP though.

I prefer the white over the black. I've never been much for black guitars. Every fingerprint & smudge shows on black.

...white can look pretty good on a LP - I'd take this Custom Shop '57 home anytime:

p.s.: I voted "black" - Customs have to be black... :cool:

I do not like white LP's.......... and yet, this a beaut. The natural back really balances the white top. Really nice...
