    I thought it was a white wash or a thin white where you can sort of see the grain.

    Since you requested it, I will add BLONDE as a choice.
    Another member requested Mary Kaye so I added that. It seems to have some afficianados.

    My strat is Vintage white, so I voted Yellow, because in fact it's yellow, and My telecaster and PRS are burst...

    If there are folks here with a lot of guitars, some will have a preponderance of one color or another. If you don't have quantities noted, your statistic will not be remotely accurately determined.

    Here's another comment (meant in the best way, of course). "Burst" can be applied widely. I have blue bursts (where do I put that one?), green bursts, a lizard burst, plus, variously, tea bursts, csbs, tobacco bursts, a sunset burst (deep amber in the middle fading to a deep reddish) and even a burst that progresses from what looks like a metallic yellow in the center to an emerald green to a deep ocean blue, all transparent applications over a quilt top. There's a red burst that progresses from a deep red in the center to a much darker red at the edges.

    Fender's Blonde is a transparent white finish where you can see the wood grain. It was typically done on ash wood. Olympic white is an opaque finish where you can't see the grain and was typically done on alder wood.

    That should be included in the “Other” category.

    While a Fractal-burned guitar top can be especially dramatic, and I would love to do one, I didn’t feel that the number of members having one would warrant it’s own category.

    For those that don’t know what FRACTAL burning is:



    Filling the burned void with a deep blue epoxy can especially add to the visual impact.

    I'm a sucker for more natural colored guitars... Mine are black, white (Oly and "Vintage White" which is really a yellow), sunburst, brown, blonde, and natural.

    Left to my own devices I wind up with something like this (apologies, but I lost the warning sticker @Thrup'ny Bit made me when I switched phones):
