    I've been spending some time drooling over the colour chart on Fenders website...so if you own a Strat in a rare colour then please post a picture of it!

    I want to see colours such as Dun Green, Candy Green, Sky Blue, Pearl White, Graffiti Yellow, Violet, Orange, Vegas Gold Flake, Royal Blue Metallic, Aqua Flake, Champagne Sparkle, Tropical Turquoise......

    I ordered this custom shop champagne sparkle years ago. Now I am seeing it in stores. Cool color I think.

    I don't own one but I love the Chartreuse sparkle on the Dick Dale model.

    I love sparkle finishes on a Strat.

    According to Fender this one is supposed to be Sherwood Green but it isn't. I've had Sherwood Green guitars and this colour is different.

    While we're on this topic how do I find out what original custom finishes that Fender offered on the early 60s Strats. We're the reissues true to the colors used or did they make them in just popular ones used currently?

    Well it's not the most common colour I see hanging on the walls or on stages. well how rare isn't it then ??? Not sure how many of these you come across ??? You can see the wood grain through and underneath the finish so it's transparent White Blonde. NOT very common on strats I have seen.

    I could well be wrong.

    Here is a rarer colour so hopefully I can live up to my post up there and contribute something a bit different.

    It's a standard color option on CVs, which are common enough that you see them everywhere. Then you've got the other models with this color, such as the American Deluxe, American Vintage '56, Eric Johnson, and among teles you've got the Cabronita and Classic Series 50's Tele. They've always got a few in this color in the mid-sized shop down the road from me, where I got my white blonde EJ strat.

    BTW the other guitars you posted are amazing!

    Midnight Blue seems pretty rare.

    My old American deluxe in white blonde, an old MIM I had in electron blue, and my baby, the 62 horrid in Sherwood green

    Probably not "rare" but uncommon, except for maybe the blonde, but it was the only strat I've seen with the copper colored plastics (they were stock, according to fender when I sent in the serial number)

    Thanks fenderman, I didn't mean to tease.
    I honestly don't know what colour it is. I've never seen it before.
