    You gotta think that by living in Germantown, Maryland, I'd be influenced by @Paruwi. Hier sind meine schwarzen Gitarren (Here are my black guitars).

    Left to right: Epiphone Les Paul Special I, Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster (for sale), Squier VM Tele Custom, Squier Standard Stratocaster, Squier Bullet Strat (my son's).

    I wanted to take a group photo before the AL Tele is sold.

    Let's see yours.

    Not at all. Glossy black with a maple fretboard is my favorite combo.

    I usually prefer transparent finishes that show the wood grain, but I do have three black ones:

    I used to have this G400 Deluxe. A beautiful guitar, but I never could bond with it. I traded it in for my Epi Hummingbird and some $$$.

    It never got played much and I play the Hummingbird all of the time so it was the right choice. I still miss looking at it though.

    What a great thread! I have quite a few black guitars and here's one of them which is my black Jackson King V with the EMG81/85 pick up combo that's sounds fabulous. It's a neck-thru the body & it's a real shredder for sure.

    Only bought one black guitar, ever, and that was 18 years ago. Sold it. I get the "all one color" thing, though....

    I found a rare and cheap Epiphone LP Social II Goth. Slapped in GM Dirty Digits on bridge with 1 meg vol pot and GM P94 on neck with its own 500k vol pot, skipped a tone circuit, roller bridge, Tesq nut, and voila!

    Here's my 1989 Yamaha RGX Custom guitar that is a neck-thru-body with a 5 piece maple/mahogany neck and select ash body. The ebony fret board is a nice touch with real crystal inlays. This guitar cost just over $2,000 brand new at the time but well-worth it.

    Here's my 2006 Epiphone Les Paul Standard guitar that I got for a great deal that included an SKB hard-shell case made in U.S.A. This guitar sounds and plays fantastic and I consider it a high-quality instrument. Epiphone sure knows how to make great guitars at a great price tag.;)
