    People with colorful guitars are just silly.

    Definitely 5 or 6.

    With the 5th you’re getting some nice complementary colours against the green (from just a little distance it becomes a colourful pickguard more than the just the pinups design). Pick this if you dig how it looks both close up and from a few meters away. I personally wouldn’t pick that type of design. It’s a bit cliche IMO. Nice colours though.

    With the white you’ got a nice, clean Telecaster, with a the of unorthodox tan.

    My reasoning for choosing between these two:

    They are the ones the tan coloured PU frames that also compliments the green, but more importantly! -it softens the contrast between the smaller bridge and the bigger Humbucker. With black you emphasise this contrast. I wouldn’t want that. Looks unflattering to me.

    I do like colours. But as a graphic designer I’m very aware of flattering vs unflattering design details.

    That said, ignore my opinion completely and go with the one you liked the most the first time you saw it. It’s usually the right choice for you.

    7. That appears to be a Les Paul Jr. type Epiphone. Simples. Two P-90s, Wraparound tailpiece, tone, volume and toggle. A no nonsense guitar.
