    Classic white w/ Tort is a fav

    So is Bust w/ Tort! I like 2 tone more than 3 myself.

    +1 on 2-tone burst, maple board. That's the classic Strat look, to me.

    I also like some of the custom colors like Aztec Gold. White blonde is nice, too.

    Olympic white/rosewood

    Tobacco Sunburst and either rosewood or maple but NOT 2-tone or 3-tone. 2-tone looks like cheap Chinese knock-off and I'm just sick of 3-tone and have been for years.

    I never really had much of a preference (though I love black guitars in general), but I do really like the look of my two-tone sunburst with a maple neck.

    Bad pic, but:
