    I'm loving this thread and had to join in even though both of these colors are already covered. In the pic below, I've got Mystic Aztec Gold (middle) and Candy Tangerine (left).

    The manager at Music-Go-Round in Albuquerque, said my Strat Plus was an unusual Fender color

    Put on your bell bottom jeans, butterfly collared shirt, platform shoes, hop in your time machine set for the 70's and you'll see plenty!

    I've even seen pre-CBS brush painted that color.

    Some call it mocha, I call it diaper brown. ;)

    My first guitar is a 94 Midnight Blue Strat Plus. I love how as it ages, it appears a little more purple.

    My sweet Squier Affinity 2018 / "competition orange" .
    That color had been introduced few years ago on the "coronado" model (offset serie), but was available just two years i think.

    it Plays like butter and sounds so cool for a so cheap strat, the color is very refreshing, like a hot tuned Porsche 911 Under the sun.

    One of these just advertised locally.
    Green/blue flip flop - changes from one to other depending on the angle of light.
    FSR MIM Std only 200 made.

    That's nice. Looks like Ice Blue Metallic to me.

    I have a Tokai in a similar colour. Tokai call it Lake Placid Blue, but it's clearly nothing of the kind - Ice Blue seems to be the closest Fender colour.

    Desert sand with gold hardware. Although the pics of these do not do them justice. It’s actually like a Mocca colour that changes in the light. FE88543B-5B91-491A-8893-5B24BD13B61A.png

    Butterscotch Blonde ain’t so common on Strats...........’rare’ isn’t easy to define.

    Hey, I think it's called ebony frost.
    Given the Wilkinson roller nut, isn't it a strat plus (or plus deluxe) with swapped pickups?

    Plus 92 probably. Did it come with a hipshot tremsetter? And TBX control?

    Not a strat color, the holy grail of rare Fender finishes: the “Ghost Tele”. Looks like a common 67-68 blond tele until it’s under a black light. Legend has it Fender made them for NAMM show that year & there’s more than one out there & possibly undiscovered one’s too https://tele.protozoic.com/guitar/tele-ghost/index.
