    Personally, I love Sonic Blue when it comes to maple necks, and Sherwood Green when it comes to rosewood necks. What're your guys' favorite colors on a strat?

    Lake Placid Blue


    Candy Apple Red (NOT Fiesta, that's far too orange)


    Or Olympic White


    With a maple board there's no choice. It has to be white.


    Just not Sunburst or black - both are such a waste on a Strat, IMHO.

    Sonic blue with the maple. I like a really light powder-y blue on a maple neck strat. It's just a great look. Surf green ain't bad and vintage white or just straight up yellow is cool too.

    Silver is unusual but I have always loved it.

    Red or some variant (sunburst) with red in it.

    I have a 1996 Daphne Blue American Standard with maple fretboard. I feel I'm really lucky to have that, because I can't think of a better look for a Strat. HOWEVER! Hank Marvin's Fiesta Red Stratocaster is incredibly striking.

    Love Daphne or Lake Placid Blue, Surf and Seafoam Green etc..... but all I have is this one. :D (And I love it)

    Let's have a Fiesta!!! (Or should I say Tomato Soup!)

    Blizzard Pearl is my favorite newer color. In real life it is much warmer than pictures online show. But black or white are my go to colors

    Anything but Sunburst, Black, or blonde. So overdone and un-original. Ugh. With all of the beautiful (and absolutely CLASSIC) Fender colors available, I can't believe people would still opt for the same old crap.

    My favorites are Sonic Blue, CAR, Seafoam Green, and Burgandy Mist for classic colors.

    I really love a lot of the old American Standard colors from the 80's and 90's too though. Midnite Wine, Hot Rod Red, Carribean Mist, Razzberry, and the short lived but incredibly beautiful 00's Candy Tangerine.

    There is no debate: Fiesta Red. This is objective fact. Deal with it.
