Colour doesnt matter, as long as its black
Seriously, I got a Squier Strat painted black, just because.
And more recently, I bougth a MIM Player Strat, because it was the only Fender model that cames in black nowadays, and at a reasonable price. I love the Player Strat actually.
But, I also like sunburst Strats.
I agree, rat hot rods and relic guitars don't peel my banana. Survivor guitar isa different story.Not very important to me. I like or can learn to like most colors and color schemes, but if were something like OD and purple striped I'd probably stay away. I don't think I'd ever buy an intentionally "reliced" guitar.
A strat that plays great, sounds great, and is not to heavy could have no paint for all I careHi guys!
As it's hard enough to find a Strat that plays and feels exactly just right to each of us, how important is the color to you?
More specifically, and as an example, say you loved Lake Placid Blue, but you found a 2 Tone Sunburst Strat that is not your # one choice as far as color, but it plays and feels better than any Lake Placid Blue Strat you had tried out, would you buy the 2 Tone Sunburst one even though you preferred Lake Placid Blue.
FWIW, feel free to reverse that color preference
I know, you SURE ask some crazy questions Jerry!!!!!!
