    I plan on purchasing a new TL62B from Ishibashi and Esquire'ing it but can't decide on color. Which would you pick?

    I've been on a IBM and OTM kick lately, so either of those. LPB would be in the running for me, also.

    Why does Fender Japan get all these cool colors for their 62 Customs, and Fender USA goes and drops the model completely?? :mad:

    Ive decided to go with the ice blue.
    The OTM looks a little too much like my Sherwood and I'm not convinced on the black binding.

    Thanks to all!

    IBM for me w/ the OTM coming in close second. I think vintage white or blonde finishes look better without binding.

    If I worked for Fender Japan I would put a little Godzilla figure in every case in the side compartment (so it wouldn't flop around in the case or touch the guitar ever).

    I voted for Ice Blue Metallic ,but I would personally go for Ocean Turquoise Metallic out of your choices. Only reason is because I have an Blue Agave Telecaster now and I know they are different ,but not by enough. Also my top pick is xtrajerry's guitar in his avatar that thing is sexy :)

    Pick the color you like best. Why do you care what color other people like best?

    I posted something similar awhile ago. When I asked for opinions becuase I was torn and liked a few finishes equally. I was hoping a picture or something from one of the member here would sway me in one direction or the other.

    I think threads like this are cool and can be informative, plus it's true you usually get more pics (always a good thing!)...
