Man... I just like them. The only colors I don't like are red because I think it's a cliche by now. Black too. Everything else I like, which works against me. What are your favorite strat colors/finishes?

I've been thinking white body/gold pickguard... but I'm getting a brazilian board and the more I think about it the more I think it wouldn't mesh.

Color wise. I think maple board/white body/gold pickguard is much better looking. But I like the alder and rosewood combo for sound.

Lake Placid Blue does it for me. Not sure why - it just grabs me.

olympic white with a rosie board. either that or Sherwood green with a rosie board. with maple, definitely good ol' two tone sunburst.

Don't know why, but Daphne Blue does it for me on a guitar. But I think it would've looked awful on a car.

OK, D-O-C, here goes:

Fiesta Red (British variant) closely followed by Sea Foam Green followed by the very dark 2 tone Sunburst followed by the SRV type Sunburst followed by Candy Apple Red. Hey, I have all of those!

I have the Fiesta sitting next to the Sea Foam in my kitchen and they both look superb together - complementary colors?

Best, Pete.

Another vote for Lake Placid Blue. Looks good under stage lights too.
