    Of the ones listed: Fiesta, Goldtop, Black. Sunburst and Natural are at the bottom of the list, assuming you're talking about your typical cherry sunburst or 3TS. I do own two burst finish guitars, but they're unusual bursts (and I'd still prefer if one of them was black instead).

    Seafoam Green! Much different than surf green.

    I'll admit I don't yet have a seafoam green guitar, though I missed a chance to nab a 345 by a hair and still feel it. I hope to have multiple seafoam green guitars one day. It draws me in like few others do.

    On your list - butterscotch, natural, white

    My real favorite colors - desert sand and sonic/pelham blue

    Save for all favor of blue guitars, my preference goes to brown earthy colors or natural finishes. Looking down at the grain of a natural finish reminds me my guitar was once a living thing.

    I do a lot of finish repairs, so I'm quite partial to satinized natural. It's an outstanding color, everyone should give it a try. Lots of tries.

    Many more exist for lefties. Take a look at DHR Guitar Experience if you are not familiar. Many colors to choose from.

    Reds, blues, greens, vibrant bursts and a wide variety of interesting.

    New White, black, butterscotch and goldtops are boring, cliche and unimaginative.

    At a concert with my wife and she nudges me and says "Doesn't the guitar player's white guitar look great on stage"?

    White.

    BTW, something not quite right about those percentages don't you think?

    I like orange, bright orange, neon orange, 80s bass boat-bowling ball speckled orange, and tangerine.

    If I look at what I own: White, Black or Red. I've been wanting to have something in Ocean Turquoise (or thereabouts). Something like this, minus the relic (although as relics go, this one is not so obnoxious):

    But really, any solid color is a potential winner depending on the guitar. The only bursts I like are something like a subtle Honey or Iced Tea on a plain top.

    Anything but sunburst; way over done already. I'll take Lake Placid Blue.

    True, but most lefty guitars in stock are by default black or maybe a brown burst.

    I like green and purple and blue, and also trans finishes where the wood is visible, all usually hard to come by in lefty.

    Some of mine ....
