sunburst. It looks so much better when its old and beat up

with it black, you would look like Clapton, with it in white you would look like...some body with an old beat up white Strat, and sunburst, you would look like Mick Mars, only without the Floyd

I thought poly didn't age like that?

is it Nitro or Poly? even so, age is age and it will happen eventually. Just quicker on the Nitro

Yeah, probably.
Plus that's the reason why I put sunburst up there really.

well, for the past few years he has been exclusively using a totally modified American Strat with a Floyd Rose and custom pups, and the sunburst finish. At least for the past shows i've seen him

When I see a black strat, I think Squier. I'd get white, it looks very cool once it starts to yellow.

Sunburst. Black is too common and bland and white only if your willing to put on a new pickguard, which'd be more money, though only $20.

white

you know you you want to...

also it looks awesome when it ages and goes all vintage

If the white is Alpine White, I'd say that. However if it's a creamy white, go for the Sunburst.

Blackie? lol.

and here are the guitars in question.


Black


Alpine White


Sunburst

But they're the upgraded 09 standards with the new headstock and the parchment pickup covers, knobs, pickguard.

Google Mick Mars photos and you'll see that his Strat is the heavily modified White Strat. He even did an Article in Guitar Center flyer about his White Strat. He uses the Sunburst for very few songs, most notably, Dr. Feelgood.

Well, it seems that I'm going to put gold hardware in whichever strat I get, so which do you think looks better with gold hardware, sunburst or white?
#28
Everyone says black and sunburst are too common, so people don't buy them. Get a sunburst one, especially if it's 2 tone.

It's either that, or make up yer own mind.


EDIT: If you're going for gold hardware, get the white one then. However, gold looks really tacky to me on a Strat, so I'd just go for nickle hardware.

Just get what you really like. I want the Mahogany HSS but can't play righty, but maybe I'll learn.

snakeskin? are you joking?
Go with sunburst, then put a parchment pickguard (american strat pickguard, darker than normal) on it and aged hardware (cream colored). it will look sick.

The upgraded 09's already come like that lol.
Honestly, if I had the money, I would buy both.
But I can't.
I've always wanted a sunburst but something about the white just gets me.
