Okay, since I am an old man in guitar years (38) and I will never be a rock-star (just started a year and half ago) I have decided that since I can't have any groupies, I might as well get some really nice gear.

So of course I will drop more then I should on a Gibson. The question is color. I have my choices down to Rootbeer and Transparent Black.

Which do you favor....?

Waddya think?

P.S. I know I am insane for buying this guitar model. But I just made a huge commission at work and you know what? I'm worth it! :)

*edit* front shot of Root Beer Instead...

Not that it matters I guess, I like the black one better. That thing is a beaut.

Personally I'd take the root beer hands down. I really don't like the look of the Transparent Black. Which one do you prefer? That's really what it comes down to, but I really like the rootbeer! Pretty beautiful in my opinion.

If I was buying it, I would go with Rootbeer. Your the one dropping the dough however, so I'd have to say it's up to you.

I don't have a preference, hence the question. I was originally thinking Root Beer but that Transparent black took me for a loop. Its like a coinflip situation.

Both are beautiful but if I were that lucky to have to decide I would choose Root Beer.

Awsome looking guitars either way

I don't think your crazy! Lucky but not crazy. Go play both of them one will "play" better than the other. By play I mean feel/sound/fret ect... the choice will be clear.

i'd go black.

and i'd put a pickguard on it, cos i dont think it looks "right" until the pickguard is on it. I'm weird

I vote Rootbeer, that is a beautiful guitar.

You are not too old. I read an old article on Godsmack a couple of days ago. The singer was 35 years old when they came out a few years back. He has to be 41-43 years old right now. He's doing pretty good for a geezer.

Between the two, rootbeer. I don't like black guitars.
