I presume we're limiting our discussion to guitars? I'd never really given a rodent's butt one way or the other about guitar colors. I used to think that it didn't matter to me. Until I went shopping for a brand new '57 Vintage Reissue (they're called AVRI's now I guess, but 30 years ago they were just Reissue') I played two, one was a two color burst and one was black. Between them the black one felt 'the best' and played 'the best' but I didn't buy it because I thought it looked like ****. That surprised me. I thought myself above that sort of thing. Too bad too, because while my perceptions regarding cosmetics were totally superficial, the deficiencies of the one sporting the sunburst were anything but cosmetic...it actually was a piece of ****. Had I bought the black one, I'd probably still have it... and it would be a trusted and valued old friend with whom I could bare my soul. Instead I bought the pretty face and now you poor souls have to endure my constant whining about it. Does that answer your question?
