    My Stingray is green.

    My Sterling is blue.

    So I choose honeyburst, because that's the best looking color. :)

    Def the 5th one.
  3. For my tastes, it's the black one or white one. Both look very classy.

    That's nice too!

    The OP also has a 2 band system... I'm more of a 3 band guy.

    I have a P-bass in that color combo. I want a stingray and a jazz in the same combo as well.

    I'm voting black/maple (even though SR5's black rosewood and I'd guess the one I bought is the one that REALLY counts), but I think you're picture is the sparkly black... I don't care for that at all. I really dig regular black and maple. No matching headstocks!

    Honeyburst or Green.

    But out of your options? White w/Maple.

    Black w maple is wut my Stingray 5 is gonna be when I one day get it...

    I'd look more into the rosewood/maple thing iffin I were you though, and choose your neck wood because of the sound and feel as opposed to how it looks.

    Nobody's ever been able to prove to me that they sound any different. Feel, yes. But sound, no.
  14. Black cherry burst with maple board for me.

    Black Cherry with matching headstock and maple fretboard... but with WHITE pickguard. Trust me on this. I have it, after seeing a few on BassCentral I ordered one in for myself.
  16. Black with maple for sure. I'm not really a fan of matching headstocks.
