So I'm thinking about a THIRD G&L (already have an L2000 and an M2000 - both awesome - see here). My initial thought was black finish, matching black headstock, tort guard, rosewood board. Pure evil, right? But I absolutely want a swamp ash body, mainly for weight, tone, and the fact that my other two G&Ls are both alder. It seems a waste to paint swamp ash straight black, especially considering swamp ash is a $75 upcharge and includes a "free" premier finish if you get it. Of these finishes, I'm not sure what to go with. I thought about maybe blackburst, also with tort/rosewood or maybe even tort/maple. Tort is pretty much a given for me, I don't particularly care for other pickguards that much (on any finish.) Thoughts? Other specs will be vintage (nickel) frets, #7 neck, satin maple neck. SB-1 pickups (obviously), all the standard hardware. Man I love G&Ls. Bang for buck simply cannot be beat.
