    I do like the white, but as your pups are black, I'd go with the black one. If you can get a black pearlised one, however...

    I normally would say the pearl but in this instance I think black is the way to go.:)

    The pearl looks too 'busy'.
    The black is better, but too much of it, too much contrast with the gray stripes, rosewood fretboard, and maple headstock. It's still a bit 'busy'.
    Your blue and gray striped body is the focus of the show. A subdued pickguard that matches the gray stripes, with black knobs and black covers for accent... NICE!
    For dessert, a soft gray guitar strap... $11.59 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079GWQFQD/?tag=squiertalk-20
    All just IMO of course.

    Black works best with that cool dark grain (IMHO)

    Between the two, black. But the aluminum option is tantalizing. It will either complement the grey on the body or be too much grey, but that's your call.

    I like em both.
    If you are going for more of a rogue, “been around the block” look, the pearl white. There’s a certain personality and mysterious look to that. Very cool.

    If you are going for a more polished look, the black for sure. Very cool as well.

    Either way, it’s a sweet looking axe with an attitude. One of the better swirl jobs that I’ve seen.

    Love it.
