    Since the correct answer hasn't been posted yet (that I see), Surf Green of course.

    Best COLOR?!? Color is sooo subjective, how can you ask that? Impossible to get one answer.

    Now if you asked which color provides the best TONE ... no question. It's shell pink, hands down. The weak hearted need not apply ...

    The question should have been what colour looks bad on a Strat, I think it's the beauty of the design, it just looks good in al colours (cue post for poop brown strat). I love the look of a 2 tone burst maple neck. To me it's like blackguard Tele. I think the custom colours look best with the rosewood 60's style (that's advertising for you).

    It's true--I can't think of a color that looks bad on a Strat although the '70s walnut (that mocha brown color) and wine red come close.

    Surf green with rosewood fingerboard is a favorite of mine. I like also sunburst, olympic white, ocean turquoise, shell pink, sherwood green... Most finishes look good on a strat.

    The only new Strat I'd consider owning would be a Natural Ash finish, but that's more about tone wood.

    However, Fender now makes that Sapphire Blue Transparent color, and I'm taken with that. Look it up.

    trev333 - I don't like black guitars but that one looks nice.

    How about a sort of red sparkle burst? This is on an 80s Tokai, I'm not sure if I've ever seen a Fender quite like this.
