Top 10 Guitarists Who Have Played Black GuitarsMetal_Treasure They don't need to play black guitars all the time but the longer, the better (for this list).
The Top Ten
James has had several black guitars. Also, one of his main guitars since 2008 has been black, too - his custom 'Iron Cross' guitar, also referred to as 'Uncle Milty'.
He has a white version of the 'Iron Cross' as well. - Metal_Treasure
His guitars were usually black Gibson guitars that he named Lucille (his iconic black 'Lucille'). - Metal_Treasure
Including his Ibanez Fredrik Thordendal Signature 8-String Electric Guitar
(this guy isn't very popular but he is very high on this list because he invented a guitar playing style - djent - that is currently pretty popular). - Metal_Treasure
Even his RAN signature model is black (in the picture). I love that pointy design. - Metal_Treasure
My favorite is his 7-String black V, with eagle graphic and eagle inlay - Metal_Treasure
Kerry King's Black Beast V - Metal_Treasure
It's a fretless guitar (in the picture).
Tom 'Fountainhead' Geldschläger played lead guitar on Obscura's Akroasis album (2016). Sweep picking is even harder on fretless guitar, especially at Obscura's speed.
Most of you probably never heard of him but it was one of the reasons to add him to this list - to share with you something new and interesting (I hope it's interesting). - Metal_Treasure
Most of the time throughout REM's history, Peter Buck can be seen playing a black Rickenbacker 360, which he bought brand new in the early 80s. - Gg2000
Neil's main electric guitar is a 1953 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop named Old Black. The guitar had been repainted by a previous owner from gold to black sometime in the early 60s. - Gg2000
