Fiesta Red with rosewood. Of the choices listed I'd say sunburst.
I had a Player Tidepool for a very short while and it was a beautiful color.
Why? Is there a sanction if we don't?
Yes your high e will forever go out of tune ..i m just curious...i mean they are all great colours ...
I don't like colours. Or Player series guitars.
So its transparent american professional for you???
Nope don't like those either. Horrible necks.
I'll take a 2 tone burst vintage spec Strat over any of them.
The correct answer is Buttercream of course!!
Buttercream is awesome....but i like and the Sage Green with Pau Ferro......
I’m kind of with @Thrup'ny Bit, I like 2-tone Sunbursts so I’m not really hot for any of them - color wise - although I’m sure they’re all great players (no pun intended).
Now if they only offered optional vintage shaded nitro versions with tinted necks for a reasonable up charge (or just added more colours to their "Classic 50s and 60s Lacquer” series), then maybe...

I really like this guitar. Neck shape is fuller than I thought which is great. The pickups are surprisingly good too. I had a shoreline gold classic players 50's strat that sounded just fine, but the soft V neck was just too small. I did like the 57/62 pickups a lot, but the set in the player series sound just as good. Don't feel like they are inferior in any way. Compaired to the classic 50's guitar, the players series neck is meatier, a lot quieter guitar too (had to add foil under the pickguard to get the noise down on the 50s.....the players series is almost dead quiet), pickups are just as good to my ear, and the pickguard is a 3 ply. Tuners are nice on the 50s though. Overall a fantastic guitar at a very reasonable price.
4. Sonic red
6. Polar white
7. Sage green
Your timing is good. Instead of going to the music store and buying a new Strat Player in Butter Cream with Pau Ferro neck, I bought ALL of the Fender parts separately and assembled my own. I don't recommend this as I'm sure I paid more than I had to, but I got it assembled perfectly with a "few" individualizing" touches. Great guitar, especially for the price!!
Buttercream of course!
Buttercream might be my favorite Fender color ever.
This is my Butter Cream Player before I realized that I needed to start over.....things just didn't fit or look right to me when I used all of my existing parts on it as shown here. I have since made it a 100% authentic MIM Player Strat In Butter Cream with Pau Ferro Neck and HSS pickups. but it still uses the wild pickguard. It's surprising what little things can do to the appearance of a guitar. My original neck on the guitar was a Lonestar, Rosewood with tinted finish....beautiful neck, but just not right for the Player. It is now on a 2015 MIM Standard Strat body and looks fantastic. I also change all of the pup covers and knobs to Cream color on the Player and I think it looks a lot better than this. Updated pictures soon.
It looks a lot different now!
Sage green is my joint least favourite Strat colour. The other is this awful purple one.
Where does Soylent Green fall on the list...?
It's not letting me vote. Tidepool.
