    Crap, I came here thinking this thread would have an answer on which color sounds best.

    White now it’s more of a cream, car, black and 3 tone. The 3 tone gets the most play not because of the color. I think the other ones are sold , wasting space and money setting around in cases for to long

    No color preference, but either solid colors or sunburst style, never got into any graphic design jobs or quilted.

    That's my low cost fleet. Most starter guitars are sold in black, so what I can find on the used listings tends to be black. I think black guitars are ok so it's not a problem. I have some other colors like bursts.

    Industry Statistics for color build rates by units sold
    #1=Black
    #2=White
    #3=Red
    #4= ... maybe Blue

    The 4 colors I hate the most are....

    1. Danelectro maroon... I have 3 guitars in this color... (****ing ugliest color on the planet)

    2. Sunburst.... 3 guitars in this color...

    3. Black..... 4 or 5 in this color...

    4. Gibson cherry... 3 guitars in this color....

    If I want to try a style of guitar, I’ll buy whatever color I find... but I’m not gonna always like it..

    Pelham/Lake Placid Blue and Shell and brighter pinks are my favorite.

    Green seems to dominate my collection.

    That's a beautiful collection! The two strats in front look especially nice, at least in the sense of being off the beaten path and "fancy". Do you have pics of one or both of those?

    Hmmmm, looking at the wall it's pretty much random and based on just buying a guitar I like to play. I do think I may have a new found affinity for black guitars though.

    I've had a variety of colors and I find that I don't like to go back to anything I've had before. The one exception is sunburst. I feel like I'm missing something important if I don't have one of those. Lately I seem to be going for warmth in color tones:

    4 sunburst
    2 black
    2 white
    1 purple

    I never set out to get a particular colour. I’m surprised that sunburst is the dominant. I really want a Sonic Blue guitar but I haven’t seen one for sale for a while. I may just have to build one.

    My collection has grown rapidly this past year....19 guitars! I do have favorite colors, but unfortunately I do not have an example of my favorite color, Cherry Burst Plus top. Maybe soon? Anyway, I do have a thing for having pairs of different guitars in the same color. I have Strat/Tele pairs in all black, Olympic White, Midnight Wine and natural Walnut transparent stain. But my guitars pretty much cover the color rainbow, reds, greens, FMT/Amber, blue, etc. I like ALL of them!!
