Mine is actually supposed to be a 50s sonic blue but always think it’s more like Daphne blue [ATTACH]
Ha, sorry Daphne Blue I meant!
Surf green is nice as well tbf, prefer that on a tele though
It does look more surf green on those pics but as already suggested I would take the neck off to compare.
Depends on how much it bothers you and...
Less is more!
New look is much better imo.
I’d always have aged accessories with a white guard (as per my pic)
Never seen those. Great example of something which looks at its best when relic’ed
Pearloid guards upset me much more than they should.
I have to just look away.
Then I thought, yes I love what’s I have but this would look especially nice alongside my 50s sonic blue. :whistling:
That’s definitely some sort of crime against musical instruments. Needs in immediately resprayed. Any colour.
Pastel Strats are the best, no exceptions
It’s just so bare and unfinished, especially on something as elegant as a Strat
It’s not actually as bad as I thought!
Still looks wrong though, only really the sleek, classic elegance of a Strat can really look...
I can only assume that there must be a financial reason for it!
That ‘64 guitar looked stunning.
Absolute certainty that 3 tone sunburst,...

There’s not really another guitar that could look ok in pink. Maybe the Gretch...?
It’s odd re the silver.
As evidenced in the attached, it is a vintage colour (which you probably already knew).
A little too blingy for me but...
That’s a very nice guitar to be fair.
A world away from the sterile look of white on white with a light maple.
Good point well made.
That’s a wee bit of a difference!
You made the right call though.
The benefits to your playing and your overall wellbeing, when you you think...
Yep, I’ve made that mistake before, usually turns out to be a frustrating and expensive experience.
Lovely, classic but unusual classic. Congrats
Yeah I prefer understated too, but just something a little more colourful than black or white - I think that the paler colours look especially...
White as well as black for me should look good but it just has a sort of nothingness to it on a strat
Yeah sorry about that There are a few colours which I find bland but it takes a special talent to make a Strat actually look that level of...
All correct. But Antigua
Knew I’d seen it somewhere before...
definitely had a toaster that “colour”
There can’t be much in it...
(top VW, bottom buttercream)
Antigua is the winner.
WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT TO A STRAT???
That can be done, sort of, but it costs a fortune.
I think it’s only because of Jimi Hendrix that white Strats are still a thing!
