    My Favorite black guitar is my Hagstrom F200. Very simple with twin humbuckers. thin body and lightning fast neck. Lowest action of any guitar I have. Bought it used for $199.00. My second favorite black guitar is the Squier behind it. Bought if for $38.00 and redid it from scratch. Sounds and plays great.

    Such great guitars.
    Here's my '51 Epiphone Zephyr Regent. Had it since early '80s when I bought it from a luthier in Phoenix who refinished and restored it. As it basically lost its "vintage value" decided over the years to make it real player.
    Now TV Jones Classic in Bridge and Neck, and a TV Jones Magnatron in the middle, and added the Bigsby.

    Nothing budget about that set up. Vox, Marshall, and Gretsch. Nice.

    That's the real sound of life.

    Here are my current black ones, in semi-chronological order of acquisition starting w/ my first nice guitar from '93:
    '92 Gibson Les Paul Studio, pretty much as it exists today aside from nickel keystone tuner buttons and black reflector knobs

    The 5655 before I swapped the blacktop & Super HiLo for Setzers

    '01 Gibson SG Jr.

    Reverend Manta Ray

    Huey, before swapping to a darker bridge base and aluminium Compton.


    Burny RLC-70

    PartsStang w/ '78 body, Offset Series neck, StayTrem bridge and arm, Lawrence Sound Research L-250 & Fralin SP43

    So you're quite fond of the colour (or no-colour) black are you? :D
