    Black or white on a burst body that will have a satin maple neck?
    Here is a pic of the body I am going to use.

    It depends on the look your going for. I like the vintage look and would go with a mint green or white (modern look). This is one I did that had a vintage tint maple neck and burst body. It originally had black but I didn't care for it. To each his own.

    3 ply black or parchment

    I've had both on my burst and thought they both looked good.
