I'm going for a '57 strat and have all the specs ready, but still undecided on the colour; would you go for shell pink over 3TSB or olympic white? All over an aged ash body

So this is going to be like a "scratch art" picture? Like a factory respray worn to show the first color peeking through?

I’ve always liked the look of solid color over 3TSB. I think, especially if doing a faded shell pink, that it would blend in too much with the Olympic white.

I would definitely go with the 3TSB under Pink given the two choices(I'd add gold hardware too). I think having the white under the pink might lead to it looking like a Barbie guitar.

Or perhaps looking more Mary Kay Cosmetics than Mary Kaye Strat.

I would go for something unique like transparent Shell Pink if I was ordering from a master builder. If not, just go regular Shell Pink.
I am waiting for a quote from my local shop on a flat sawn necked Tele. Straight up NOS Shell pink!
Do it!!!

Honestly think I might go with a transparent vintage blonde over aged ash '56
I like that better than the other options. And I *love* Shell Pink! But if you're going full '50s, the Pink over 3tsb would look weird (to me) and I wasn't loving that Pink over White you posted....
So go for the Transparent Blonde! :aok
