I ordered the Lake Placid Blue. It was a toss up between that and the black. I also tried the red in person and it was very nice, but I am just not a sunburst or red kind of person. I should be getting the guitar on Monday! I'm so excited.

Having seen them all in person, I would say they are all beautiful, but all very different. I think the sunburst and the Lake Placid Blue are the most striking, but neither are my taste so I bought a red one. I quite like it. The red, of all the models looks best under stage lighting--or at least that's my opinion. Also, I also have the JTV-59 in the cherry burst so I wanted something painted to contrast with my 59's "woody" look.
The black, is, well, black. I love black guitars, but I have a black gretsch and no strat style guitar in black is ever going to look as cool as a black gretsch.
My $0.02, I don't think you'll be unhappy about any of them.
