    I wouldn’t have a problem...

    Actually, I think I’d much prefer a Shell Pink one to a gold/silver colored one

    Would totally gig one, if I had a SP Strat. I think this is a very cool color and I am old enough not to feel embarrassed or insecure about colors. However, I could embarrass myself playing a guitar of any color :D

    Lol It might not be the best choice to bring to a biker bar but if you can play I’m not sure it will matter.

    Afaic, Shell pink is a great color. I don’t think it looks any more pretty or feminine than Daphne blue. I will say both Daphne blue and Shell pink look significantly less “cute” with a little relic treatment, but buy what you like. Life’s too short to worry about the other guy..

    My friend had one, he always put on his pistol and holster before he played.

    Seriously though, if you can play I don't think people are going to say much about the color.

    Well it's not my favorite colour... But if it were I definitely would!
    Just like the others have said : who cares what others think?

    I couldn't care less about what others think of my guitar color choices. If I had a pink one, I would use it. But I have always been the "odd man out" here, as my personal least favorite color for a Strat is shell pink and my least favorite color for pickguards is mint green. Nothing to do with perceptions of the crowd when playing....just my own color choices!!

    I dont really care for the color so unless I found an amazing deal on a pink strat I probable wouldn't own one.

    I would. I love shell pink, and I’d totally gig with it if I had one.

    It would go nicely with my polka dot Buddy Guy Strat.

    I would not buy a pink Stratocaster. I'd play one if I was using someone's at a jam or whatever.
