    Daphne blue for me. It took me a while to find what I wanted and now that I have it, I plan to hold onto it.

    To me, nothing beats the whiteguard look.

    I'm a fan of the whiteguard look (hence the AV58), and the classic solid colors (AV64). The CAR on the AV64 is more of a ruby slipper red, to me. I like it more than most CARs. Also a huge fan of what I call robin's egg blue. It's Daphne, but not yellowed, and definitely not sonic. Like this MJT Strat I assembled for my son.

    I like Olympic or Vintage White, with rosewood board, parchment guard, but perhaps more so on a Strat.

    There's a double-bound fat-necked Tele in my future. Daphne with white, or (un-yellowed) Surf / white. Or, for something completely different, I wouldn't mind burgundy mist, with white binding and guard, and gold hardware. I'd probably have to wear a fancy cowboy shirt just to play it at home, though.

    White guard for me too, though I'm also rather taken with my 'new' two tone sunburst as well:

    She's just parts for the moment, but I'm really digging the Graffiti Yellow!

    I'm a fan of the burst stuff. The hot rail is out of the tele and the stock pickups are back in. I don't play heavy crap anymore.
