    I would go for the white wth rosewood neck and black pickgard-Rick Parfitt.
    I love the tuxedo black with white pickgard and maple neck.
    I voted 1st

    All the best,
    Robin

    Ahh... necks are a little too short to use for crutches.

    My preferred combination isn't listed :(
    Gotoh Cosmo Black bridge, control plate, tuners and knobs add the finishing touches.
