    There's so many beautiful colors especially with a rosewood neck. My favorites are shoreline gold, shell pink, burgundy mist, Sherwood green and even daphne blue.

    Which colors are your favourite or on your wish list?

    I remember maybe 20 years or so ago one of the guitar mags (either Guitar Player or Practicing Musician) had a "Guitar of the month" 2 page color shot of some fancy old guitar. One month they had an old shoreline gold Strat with a maple board and gold hardware, and she had some wear on her but I thought it was the most beautiful Strat I'd ever seen. So Shoreline with maple board and gold hardware for me :)

    Your list is my list, other than my blue is Sonic: a color described as a synonym for sound.

    You asked about metallic colours. My favourites are Shoreline Gold and Burgundy Mist.

    When it comes to non metallics my favourites are Daphne blue, Shell Pink and Surf Green.

    I like the gray-ish variants - mainly the Meralic Blue Ice (when it's more gray than blue) and also inca Silver and Charcoal.

    I also like Fiesta Red and Candy Apple Red.

    I want to refinish my 3 Tone Sunburst Strat to Metalic Blue Ice...

    I'll do it with a friend so it would cost much less... I'm Isreali so I can only comment on Israeli prices, which are usually anywhere between 300 to 400 USD for a refinish...

    Plus im still stuck on rosewood lol. I got a player with the pau farro n it's not bad but i still prefer the look of the rosewood. Funny enough i really like the tone of Pau farro is more punchy to my ears. Just not very aesthetically pleasing to me. So im gonna try to dye the board darker.

    For metallics, prolly my CS '59 relic in faded Blue Ice Metallic. It is quintessential late-fifties-- I believe a color for Mercury that year.

    Edit: I just realized you were asking about metallic colors. Sorry, when i browse on my phone I only see the first few words of the subject line...
