I love the lighter woods and maple fretboards, darker fretboards have not excited me lately.

With boys it's like "here's an incredibly complex sport to learn with sophisticated rules and various interdependent roles to play in a social unit."

For girls it's like "here's Barbie...you're fat!"

*is going to get that exact guitar some day*
well, maybe with a floyd instead of the wilkinson

Red. Take that blue_strat!

I'd say it depends on the fingerboard. Black looks better with maple than rosewood, imo.

This man knows his stuff. you can never go wrong with a black or darker coloured guitar. Preferably black though.
