    Called me out as a sunburst and I am an exclusive wood grain guy. How did it know?

    This must be full on science :)

    Candy Apple Red? I actually have a strat in red but I've never liked the color. Go home, Fender, you're drunk!

    Born half an hour into Sagitarius... So I should like 'natural', 'black' or 'Ocean Blue' - no dice I'm not partial to any of those...

    I'm supposed to like candy apple red. Out of 24 guitars, 3 are worn cherry. That's as close as it gets.

    I'm a Scorpio, and my guitars are:

    Candy Apple Red - 1
    Black - 1
    Trans Black - 1
    Graphite - 1
    Trans Blue - 1
    Trans Orange - 1
    Sunburst - 4
    Natural - 1
    Butterscotch - 1

    So, where does this "natural or black" nonsense come from?

    Despite the numbers, my favourite finish is actually CAR.

    This article is just a concoction to sell more guitars. Note that no colour options not offered by Fender were mentioned. Umm, just saying.

    I'm a Gemini too.
    You can have that finish. It looks like pus.

    I'm a Gemini and I like that too...I probably have more white or olympic white guitar or blonde guitars than anything else...although in the last several years I've been using mainly natural guitars.

    Shell pink with tort and maple? YES! Is that a current model?

    Yeah, I don't like candy apple red, either!

    I share his birthday... I don't think Ocean Turquoise is me at all though. I only play red guitars.

    That's hilarious.

    Based on this article, I should be a MUCH better lead player. And own different colored guitars.

    No wonder I always have gas. I thought what mattered was how they felt and how they sounded.

    The result is the same if you play with horoscopes!

    My birthday is one day before his. Guess we both know what our parents did on Valentine's Day, eh?

    My color is called Champagne which must be French for putrid.
    Without a doubt the worst color in the Fender palette.
    I only have half my sight in one eye left, but after seeing this color I feel like taking a spoon and popping what’s left of my good eye out.
    Ok, not really popping it out, I just had a flash of Dan fighting Capt. Turner on Deadwood, very painful indeed.
    But that color makes me want to get another eye patch for my good eye.
