Prices are around $1200.... This is what I found and my wrest ion on color

I have located a couple of 650, new, made in 2012, so 1 year warranty left. Prices are close on each. 1 mapleglo, 1 Ruby and 1 midnight blue. I would think the maple would wear better (nicks and scratches) but I am pretty easy on my things. The blue looks interesting.

Any experience with different colors (and yes, I know it is personal, this would be an over the Internet purchase).

Well, since you've established it's pretty subjective, I'll throw my two cents in. I bought my Ruby 360/6 basically on impulse when my local dealer had it at a price too good to pass up. I was a little leery of Ruby finish precisely because it was so insanely perfect. It was like wearing a brand new white shirt-I expected nicks and scratches to drive me crazy, because this guitar gets USED. my experience, eighteen months in, is that the finish is still stunning, and the little bumps and bruises of active use haven't seemed to take a toll at all.

I personally think 650 look sweet in Ruby, because of the way the maple board looks against the red; the only thing better IMHO were those Fire Alarm Red 360 WB with the maple boards that went to Germany. Good Luck!
