How does this look?

I bought an unfinished body from the showcase, and now i am deciding on what to do to finish it.

What do you guys think of either of these options?
I am thinking of having a stripe, maybe 3/8" running down the center of the body.
If i do a white finish, the stripe will be black, and if i do a black finish, the stripe will be white.

Does it look stupid or what?

i think it would look nicer if the stripe was thicker......

How much thicker?

I am absolutely not a fan of Warmoth's competition stripes (or whatever they are called)
They look really stupid to me.

black with the white stripe made me think of a highway

For hannaugh,

It's certainly not an LA highway... 
I don't see any bags of trash, mattresses, or blown out tires, and I certainly don't see the bumper to bumper traffic and gray haze from the smog.

does my bum look big in this?

I would go for a straight line... can't you do a 'masked' type line on black?

I don't quite understand what you mean by "straight line"...
This is a straight line isnt it?

By masked, i assume you mean a natural masked thing, where the plain wood shows thru.
The body is Alder, which is really nothing to smile at when bare.

I did a white pinstripe on my black strat.  It looks great.  Go for it!

I like the double white on black, but would rater the finish to be matte.

If i do white, its going to be matte/satin.
Black i haven't decided yet.
