    Fender has a variety of whites: Oly, arctic, vintage blonde, vintage white, US blondie, flat white, and I recently saw a guitar autographed by Jeff Beck described as "Brilliant white." What is the whitest strat color out there?

    Arctic has just a hint of blue in it, but to my eye is the "whitest." Olympic seems to have a bit of yellow to it, and others even more so. I've never seen a Fender flat white though so I can't compare it.

    This is what I see also. Although some Squiers can be really bright white whether labeled Olympic or Artic.

    My ability to see colors is terrible. They all look totally white to me unless I see them next to each other.....

    Arctic looks the whitest to me, since the tiny bit of blue in there makes it seem brighter.

    So Olympic pearl would be White Blonde, but a solid color with no transparency.
