What Strat are you a sucker for?

I currently have a 2005 American Series Stratocaster in Olympic White that has really aged nicely. It's a nice warm white, about the color of a banana (the inside, not the peel). And right now, I'm looking to buy....

Another Olympic White Stratocaster.

I don't know what to say. I'm a sucker for a Strat in OW.

What type of Strat do you find it hard to resist? What color or type do you have multiples of? Twins? Triplets?
Been thinking of a Partscaster modeled on a '66 thru '68 Olympic White, rosewood board. Like the ones Hendrix played after Monterey and before Woodstock. He used burst and black during that period but the B&W photo shoot at Fillmore West with the white one was killer. 1656519642141.png

Kind of a sucker for my burst Aerodyne. Really like the white binding.

S-types satisfy my Fender Strat itch these days. (That doesn't count my Tele, SG, and semi-hollow)

Although, the MIM that I had was great, and it sold quick after I installed the pickups from a Fender USA Stratocaster, and advertised it on CL.

Years ago, I HATED sunburst anything. Then I fell in love with a strat that ended up getting stolen from me. Since then, I have been trying to find the "one that got away." In that time, I have really liked the 50s and 60s Seafoam green and Daphne blue reissues.

the one on the left is killing me with GAS :)
I´m the 3rd owner, so I have the "full history". 1st owner bought it new in ´79 and had it until he past away. The widow sold it to the second owner in combo with a Fender apm in 2013. He was actually most interest in the amp, and barly played the guitar.
I bought it from him in march 2020 - and it was 100% original. When I took of the pick guard it looked like (and I guess..) it never had been off.
Here is a picture from the day I bought it:

Original hard case and some of the "case candy" - and of course the trem-bar.
The only dent is the small one that can be seen under the switch.
Of course I have kept the original loaded pick guard, and the only mod that has been done it soldering on/off the jack socket and the ground cable.

I’ve been really taken with the 70s strats. Not the real ones but the reissues. I took a chance on one that was a deal way back and I fell in love. I even bought a Squire CV 70s Strat. lol

For some reason I don't really like the classickiest of classic colors, like Olimpic White, Sunburst and Black.
But I'm a sucker of the car color ones... and most of all Candy Apple red, especially with a black pickguard
