    Damn, that Green burst is unique, and I really like it. So many other stock colors are a dime a dozen, but that one is both rare, and pretty...

    Two-tone sunburst, no red, more chocolate-ish, non-relic.

    White!

    My favorite guitar is roasted though without any finish at all.

    I'm partial to blue, especially when you get that woodgrain showing through. I really like the Blue burst (like on the Player HSS Plus Top) or translucent blue, like I have on my Squier Affinity. IMG_20210926_080515.jpg IMG_20210926_080605.jpg

    Fiesta Red with a mint guard and rosewood board is my favorite combo on a Strat.

    3 tone sunburst, then metallic aquamarine, then maybe fiesta red. Yes?

    Oooh, yeeesh. I have to go with Candy Tangerine, Fiesta Red, Shell Pink. For straight up beauty I have a Select Strat with a flame maple face finished in a really cool mix of green and blue in a sunburst. Magic. oh, and Black.

    I am partial to blue. (I don't think the iPhone captures blues very accurately.)
    From left to right: Dark Night, Lake Placid Blue, Tidepool, and my favorite - Ice Blue Metallic

    My favorite is Ice Blue Metallic, I own two guitars in this finish its so unique from the more popular finishes. Sunburst and OW are a close second however for me

    Any color, as long as it's black

    There are only 4 Strat colors I don't like:

    Target Burst
    Boring Black
    Poo Brown (to put it politely)
    and of course Antigua.

    There are one or two others I'm not that partial to such as orange or yellow, but they wouldn't stop me buying a guitar if it was a great player.
    Otherwise I like them all but particularly Surf Green, Sonic Blue, Burgundy Mist and Shell Pink.

    My all-time favorite though, has to be a slightly aged Oly White with a rosewood board and torty PG. I recently bought an American Standard in Natural, and will probably put the torty PG on that. It's close enough!

    This is a great colour. I hope to own a Strat this colour one day.

    Regards
