    I'm kind of a black and white person. I like white strats and black strats. Maple, 50's style. Only exception is a 68 Jimi Woodstock Strat look-alike. Or a 68 Jimi Black Beauty look-alike.

    Just for curiosity's sake - the famous white strat that Jimi used towards the end of his life was actually two identical guitars. One is the Woodstock strat, the other is the Maui/Rainbow Bridge strat.

    My personal favorite is maple/CAR, but Ocean Turqoise is making inroads.

    You realize you aren’t supposed to like that twin because it is too heavy. I learned that here. LOL

    White IS nice!

    I think a bright white body, with a white guard looks pretty great.

    Especially - an Arctic White Tele, with a rosewood board

    For Fender's, I always go with maple necks and single coils. My other guitars are PRS with rosewood and humbuckers. I go with what they do differently and best. But, I don't like white or black guitars.

    I do have a couple of AVRI Mary Kayes, and they look great. But, the most beautifut of my Strats is the two tone burst 54.

    I looked a long time for this one guitar.. I think this is my favorite .... AT THE MOMENT.

    A Shell Pink - rosewood neck version. It sounds a good as it looks!
