What is your favorite JS finish? (non graphic)

Wondering what your favorite finish is for the JS series ? (past and present)
I like the candy apple and the finish on the JS 90th.
I know the graphic models & chromes are amazing, but I'm interested in what you think of the more "normal" finishes. If I ever scored a JS2,3, 4, 5, 10th, PRM, Blackdog, or 20th I'd baby it to much to really rip it up day after day...
Just curious to see what your favorites are

The JS90th really should be up there with the other special editions, so that's cheating

I actually think the best of the regular finishes is the much maligned black pearl! I just wish it had a matching headstock.

The BP looks great under stage lights and is black enough to be either anonymous (and thus not an obvious signature model) but also black enough to be truly "metal"

Me too, but I don't think they ever made one, right? So actual production, I'd have to go with 2PRM, but I'd love a white with white headstock.

They DID make a white JS with a matching headstock. But not for a long, long time...

Probably the 1200. I love the red with chrome hardware. I also like the white JS1000 but wish they had it with a matching headstock. I like the 2400 but it looks a bit weird with the cut-away to me...The BTB isn't bad either though it wasn't released in the US, again if only it also had a matching headstock.

OMG! Didn't know that! But 3 pickups doesn't do it for me, even though I just bought a 5740QRB from Rich! But I'd take it if that was all they offered.
