    So, I kinda backed into a Strat body. It's already got primer on it, so I'm gonna go solid color.

    I already have a 3 tone sunburst, 60's Roadworn Strat with a Rosewood fretboard... So, I've been thinking...

    Help me decide what color to go with.

    Your avatar looks like you have your mind made up. Of the three, I would probably go with the Shell Pink, but I would go with Sonic Blue or Fiesta Red over all the choices.

    I'd say white but since I don't dig tort guards I'll go with pink. :mrgreen:

    I like the idea of white, tort guard and maple. I was thinking of one day having one like that.

    I voted shell pink because I think white and tort only look good together if there's a rosewood board.

    I have to say, you guys re entertaining!

    And the results are interesting as well. Can't wait to see where it ends up in the long run.

    Thanks everyone for voting, I hope to get a big sample of results.

    Of your 3 options,I voted for the black body.But of all your possible colors I would suggest a vintage white body with mint green pickguard and a rosewood fretboard.
