Re: Please help me decide:

Well....when I first saw the black extras, I thought it was better. But now that I look at them side by side I think the white matches better with the Vine.

I voted black though, because I think it would look best with the black and a tan vine. Or even better yet - black with a maple board and either brown or black vine. Some help I am eh

If you are going with the white vine, I'd go with the white extras

Its now only 1 & 2, which now 3 is 1... confusing... since only Jim voted on the Black and pushed me to one of my original ideas with a Tan Perloid Vine:

Thanks for the vote

I like the white, I take it your using lacewood? If so I've only seen one guitar build in lace and it was gorgeous.

Yes, the body is lacewood, and is the actual body I had done, still working on the neck ideas.

Thanks for the idea, but I do not like playing on maple fretboards as much as I do on Rosewood.

The one guitar I played that was lacewood was one of the lightest gutars I've ever played, how heavy is yours?
