    Hello

    First. I can't describe how much i love Candy Apple Red with Maple Neck and White Pickguard. Theres something about it that melts my eyes and wants to touch it like boobs. The deep red is like a drug for me and my first Fender Telecaster which im never going to leave. Love wine too.

    Second favourite is Butterscotch Blonde and of coruse Maple Neck with Black Pickguard. I have to admit i love Katheryn Winnick, Maria Brink and Gillian Anderson. Always were into Blondes and Amber colours. Wish i would marry a lovely Blonde soon. This is most classic color for Gentleman.

    Third one tells me that i do Love beach and sea, couldn't be happier having fun in water at sunny day. Blue like Tidepool or Sea Water with Maple Neck with White Pickguard. Calms me down , makes me a dreamer.

    Whats your 3 favourite colours ?

    You mean favourite colour and fingerboard. Almost all standard Telecasters have a maple neck: the fingerboard can be maple, rosewood, pau ferro, ebony (& no doubt some others I’ve forgotten).
    </pedantic>
    My favourites:
    * black with maple
    * sonic or lake placid or daphne blue with rosewood
    * Olympic white with rosewood

    Satin black with ebony. No fretboard markers. And a black pickguard. And black hardware.

    And maybe some black shielding paint inside so that when you say "wow, everything is black" I can say "you have no idea..."

    I've even found black polepieces and black strings. But I'm stymied by the frets.

    Pink paisley is good too.

    If I’m chosing teams, I prefer em simpler, (like myself), & understated, in a devastating kinda way;
    white blonde & maple board or Fiesta Red & maple board...not a museum piece for the wall

    How about what I don't like first? Candy Apple Red/rosewood, sunburst/anything, bsb/rosewood. Favourite combinations would be bsb/maple, Lake Placid Blue/maple, natural ash/rosewood, white blonde/maple, and my new favourite, Sherwood Green metallic/rosewood. I also like the pastels; Seafoam/surf green, daphne/sonic blue but only with maple.
    I'm also a big fan of Fiesta Red/maple, but only for Strats. I'm not so keen on custom finishes, sparkle, engravings, pinstripes etc.

    Red is a diffuse way to talk about a color. Fender has got quite a few of them. Dark Dakota, flashy Candy apple, yellower Fiesta. Torino red, race red… they all look different. I prefer maple neck with lighter orangey reds like Fiesta Red and Race red. And I do think rosewood looks better on darker reds like Dakota, Candy apple and Torino.

    Gotta be a maple neck. My favorite (which I own) is Antigua however white or sunburst come close.
