    Okay everyone, if this was a perfect world and you could have a Telecaster of your specifications. What color would that telecaster be? Black, white, blonde, copper, sparkly, paisley, camoflauge, rattlesnake hide...what?

    I am thinking I would thoroughly enjoy a metallic burnt orange color.

    Butterscotch blond with a black pickguard does it for me.

    I like Daphne Blue when the finish turns yellow and the blue turns green.

    Well, it really depends on the Telecaster, but recently I've been seriously thinking about re-doing my 60's Classic to look something like this:

    I love my paisley!!!

    Sure do like the pictures I've seen of shell pink, though. Also ORANGE. Never seen either of those in real life. I think orange with binding would be cool...

    I own Black one with a white guard. It was a used guitar and I had no color choice other than to to buy or not to buy. I love playing it such that I don't even think about the color. In other words it does not matter. Having said that my favorite is a natural or lightly tinted finish. Some day I will build one in natural. My theory is a guitar is wood. I want to see the wood. But mainly I want a guitar that I just want to play.

    Lime green with pink binding. (I'm saying this just so someone posts that virtual-guitar-built monstrosity again :D)

    That's the one! (I removed the IMG tags for this QUOTE - we don't need to see it twice do we? ;))

    I never really looked at it closely. It's a sunburst - well, more like, a spewburst. I thought it had pink binding?

    Every day I'm getting closer and closer to making this guitar come to life. There's a slight Pinocchio thing happening there. If ya took away the things that just wouldn't work, it could be done - if only to make Jack Wells spit coffee on his computer :D.
