    Torino Red is my favorite Fender color followed by Shell Pink.

    Other than those I like Tobacco Burst.

    blondes are my fav, but anything is cool with me as long as it's not metallic. you wouldn't finish a nice piece of wood furniture in metallic...it would be tacky. it's not necessarily tacky on a guitar, but it's drab at this point. LPB is probably my all time "wtf" color - why do you want your guitar to look like a ford taurus? it's the cheapest looking metallic of all of them...

    Natural for me, I have a natural partsy I put together but I still find myself fantasizing on all the popular stores sites about other nattys

    I picked three. As instructed. I could’ve picked a bunch more.

    I’m down for anything that is not blonde, sunburst, black, or white. Those are way tired, way overdone, and way boring.

    Give me blues, reds, purples, pinks, greens, oranges, racing stripes, plaids, paisleys, florals, anything with some personality.

    I agree but can you imagine how many possibilites there are: color of body + pick guard + neck. Even now this poll has too much options :D

    I saw this antiqua color that had turned to this amazing smokey grey ice blueish color. Absolutely stunning.

    Thanks! It wasn't really necessary; I plead Swiss neutrality when it comes to polls like these. I hope you find what you are looking for, though. :)

    I put a Lollar CC in a Tele build i did too. Love it...but later I ended put the bridge version in as well b/c I couldn't get a good balance between the two volume wise...shocked how loud a low output pickup could be.

    Quick question...what pots are you using? I'm currently using 250k's w/ no treble bleed & am think about either going up to 300k or 500k to make the tone control more useable. Once I start backing off the tone control, it gets too dark too quick.

    While I'm open to other colors on occasion, it's usually 3 types that I largely prefer, and in this order:

    Natural, Burst, Butterscotch

    Though I do kind of want an orange sparkle Tele or LP someday.

    I'm a BSB dullard, followed by vintage blonde, then Fiesta Red. I also like Dakota red and Firemist gold.
    Coral (?) and Seminole red are pretty neat as well. I saw these examples up-close at Songbirds.
