    LPB, white pickguard, with a maple fretboard is probably my favorite. Of course none of my Teles look like that; I've got two natural and one white.

    The great thing about a simple design is that it can carry almost anything. I’ve always said it’s hard to find a bad colour for an old Beetle, and teles are kind of the same way. My tele is BSB/blackguard, and I enjoy just looking at it. I do jones for a CAR with rosewood, though. And really, almost every picture here looks good to me.

    I've always liked dark natural on almost any guitar or bass.

    Half the reason I bought this guitar was the sound, half the looks.

    It's also a little unusual to see a dark Tele with a dark board.

    It sounds warm, with just enough Tele snap to satisfy that Tele sound.

    Everyone should try one.

    Candy Apple Red with Black Guard looks great on any guitar with Rosewood or Maple fretboard.

    So hard...

    I love the "real" Tele colour - BSB with a black guard:

    [​IMG]

    I also love a surf green with a rosewood board:

    And then there's the all-rosewood version:

    But I think my favourite would be this:

    This works for me. (black pickguard and maple fretboard are absolute essentials.)
