    Well i was gonna answer this question 20 minutes ago, But then i got distracted by this site because there's so many options lol. But the Vintage white with the matching headstock is nice.

    My two favorite color combos are:

    Sonic Blue with Mint pg
    Spanish Copper Metallic with Tort PG

    Of your three choices, I voted for Ruby. The "Himalayan Blue" is very cool, too! Color scheme can be the toughest choice. I had the same problem when I decided to buy a Ric. Except for black, I like ALL of their finishes so I went natural.
     
  6. Out of those choices, I voted Ruby. I haven't seen many great examples of tort pg's from G&L.

    My thoughts:

    Natural/tort: always a nice combo, although I prefer natural/black. Alder will look a little plain-jane, so you may want to spring for the ash. My understanding (from Carvin's wood guide, and from a review I once saw Ed Friedland do) is that ash will have a bit of a mid-scoop compared to alder, so bear that in mind.

    Vintage white/tort: this is the one I like best out of all your options, and as soon as I get done posting this, I'm going to vote for it.

    Ruby red metallic/white pearl: when I first looked at this, I liked it, but the fingerboard was still set to maple. Once I switched to rosewood, my eye wanted something darker for the pickguard. Black pearl was awful (IMO) but the 3-ply black was very sexy.

    Thanks. That one isn't really my thing, mostly because of the maple board.

    I was thinking possibly tort for the ruby red as well but I thought all the red would be overkill.

    I think I'm leaning toward vintage white. I keep staring at this

    Is that yours? If so, what kind of strap is that?

    The vintage white with the cream pickguard is my favorite.

    Oh I didn't see the whole link when you posted it. Thanks! They must have JUST added the LB-100. It wasn't there yesterday.

    I edited the original post.
