Swirls are the best guitar finishes for me, hands down. No 2 are the same, the color combinations are endless, and when done by the hands of a master (Darren, Herc), they are truly works of art.

Neither really, quite alot of the time I prefer a natural wood finish, especially if it is nicely waxed or oiled. But I do also have a soft-spot for plain black with a cream or white binding round it. That always does it for me too. But the natural wood is usually my choice, it just looks better, requires less maintenance.
I like swirls and solid colors... I'm not a big fan or pictures/graphics, etc...
Wish my RG was natural.....much nicer if you ask me!
shame you didn't include transparent finishes in the poll. i think there are a million ways of making a guitar look great with a nice figured top.

tough one to answer, because it depends on the guitar. in terms of custom graphics, i am a big fan of the RG METAL (i think it was called that)... the one with the hot girly in the tight leather skirt... i get weak just thinking about that one...

Now I really want to see a picture of this RG Metal guitar that you're talking about.

I like many different finishes on guitars, but if I were designing my own custom guitar then I think I would want a custom textered paint job with a design scheme of my choosing.

there's a fairly lo-res reproduction of it on this site: http://www.pamelina.com/pamelina_091.htm
i like to start off using a solid color and then do something layered as a sort of graphic

Sweet. Now that's a "nice figured top"...
I'd like to see Pearl colors. White Pearl, Red Pearl, Ice Blue, anything but Black Pearl:smile:

OMG, that is just beautiful!!! Thanks for the link. Now THAT'S the kind of custom paint job that I'm looking to get on a custom guitar.....except textured.
Custom! only swirl i really like is orange/black
Transparent colors with flamed maple (or similar wood) tops.
I prefer solid colors or natural finishes such as bursts. Custom graphics as cool as they can be just seem to be dated IMO. But if that's you're thing then, good for you just not me.
