I'm redoing a Tele. It's a Modern Player Plus, so it has the HSS with a 5-way switch. I had planned on doing a more simple, rustic stain on it, but the pinewood body shows some anomalies that require paint instead. The white pearloid pickguard is already ordered. No question about that. Now I can't decide between a couple of colors. I'm a big fan of Fender's buttercream (and vintage white). But I do already have that on a Jaguar, and I kinda think that's a color better suited to Strats and Jags for some reason. I also really like a good red Fender, especially with the white pearloid. It's a classic look. And I'm quite fond of both Candy Apple and Fiesta. So which do you think best suits the Tele? Btw, it's a roasted maple neck and fretboard. Edit: if it helps, if colors go with genres, I love punk/alt/grunge, general rock, some synth rock stuff, surf rock, Americana, funk, hip-hop, trip-hop and indy-pop instrumentals. With this guitar, it could be anything from White Stripes to Tom Petty to Tycho to Funkadelic. I do not really listen to or play country, which I realize many people associate Teles with.
