    So I'm not saying I'm gonna get one of these any time soon but I recently played a G&L LB-100 and loved it with the rosewood fingerboard (unusual for me). So it's time for a random poll to see what strangers would get if they were me (and if I were actually getting one).

    Thanks for playing!

    3-tone sunburst (vintage tint on the HS)

    Sonic blue (no tint on the HS)

    I could get a matching HS on the blue (kinda like it without - also odd for me) but I wouldn't do that on the SB.

    sonic blue, but w/matching headstock, so it'll match the JB in your avatar.

    Thought of that. The JB is Himalyan Blue. I think the sonic looks better with the rosewood. Plus, I don't want them too matchy-matchy.

    I like the sonic blue vs the burst, but I really dig my electric blue with aluminum guard.

    I like them both. I just got a vintage white/mint guard/RW LB-100. They tone/quality/playability is top notch. You'll be getting one soon. lol I'm already thinking of ordering another in tangerine with a maple neck.
  7. I had a rosewood/sonic blue Strat years ago. I love that combo

    Blue with matching headstock.

    Matchy-matchy doesn't have to be a bad thing!

    I love the Sonic Blue - great color for bass!!

    Although I will say that G&L does a great job on their colors. Their green is amazing in person too. Hell, I even like their sunburst!!
  16. I really like the sonic blue w/o matching headstock. Maybe vintage tint headstock?
