Hey UG community, I'm doing a statistics investigation for a math class and I decided to compare the color of one's main guitar (the one that you instinctively reach for) and their main genre (blues, jazz, rock, metal etc.). Can you tell me your main guitar's color (sunburst, red, blue, black, natural) and whether you play classic rock (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, etc.), Jazz (i.e. Pat Metheny, George Benson, Mike Stern) or Punk (The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Ramones)?

For your survey, you might want to narrow the options to a few broad musical genres- some genres are very balkanized, so your analysis could be bogged down in minutia.

Also, IME, UG seems to be very metal oriented, so you may want to post about your study on multiple guitar sites to get better data.

2 main guitars (singles, humbuckers) black, red. of course that is right now. I have had guitars of all kinds of colors over the years and don't really care that much. I play classic hard rock and blues rock
#20
Tobaccoburst (orange?) - a little bit of everything, mainly hard rock.

And looking back on it, the 3 other guitars I own/have owned have been red; same genres played as before.
