There's no advantages/disadvantages for either of them, at all.

i think the only advantage would be that the natural finish will probably not show its age over time. no paint to wear out and chip and what not. i like the look of natural finish better. its something you dont see all the time.

Disadvantages? You mean like the splinters you get from natural guitars.....

Not true^^^^ Natural finished guitars are known to sound more open than guitars with a coating of paint. Over all if u havent player for more than 4 years than you most likely cant even tell the difference. Its all personal preference and if your a beginer get the one that looks best and when u get a 3000 dollar guitar thats when every little thing makes a difference. In no way did i mean that natural sounds better... just more open. You may prefer it to paint and u may prefer paint to natural.

I don't understand how a natural finish can make a guitar sound more open? The -only- difference between natural finishes and solid color finishes are that solid color finishes have pigments mixed in with the clear coat to give them color. There's absolutely *no* tonal difference between them. It's purely asthetics.
