    This thing gets darker/more orangey the longer I have it.

    It's the color of the one I don't have....yet...

    except for that Antigua avocado nightmare...apologies to those who like it, I'm happy for you because it means more choices for me.

    Never seen one before so I had to look it up. Thought it was really ugly at first, now it's kinda growing on me.

    Bet it would look a lot better with a black pickguard.

    Black. Not black would be a close second.

    I like the see-through whites, but if I only have one Tele it will always be black, with black pickguard and rosewood fretboard, like this:

    I have fantasies about a double-bound tobacco sunburst.

    Tough call. The first Tele that really caught my eye was the Deluxe Blackout, and I still think it's a great look.

    I also definitely like Butterscotch Blonde blackguards. My go-to gigging tele is a BSB.

    [​IMG]

    But my favorite color is on the guitar in the background of that pic, my Honey Blonde. Not FMIC's honey blonde color. At least, it doesn't look the same in pics (I've never seen a Fender Honey Blonde Tele up close and personal). Mine is a t-style Logan Custom, with Bob's Honey Blonde color.

    Here is a pic he took of his prototype "Logo" thinline in that color...

    ...and I bought that very guitar, here is a pic my wife took...

    [​IMG]

    It may look close to butterscotch blonde in pics, but it's lighter than that, and "honey blonde" really describes it well. The guitar is 5 years old, and I'm loving the way she's aging. The fading honey blonde color really has the look of an old Tele.

    I had one of the blackouts for a bit. Really a classy looking guitar!

    That is one of the finest Telecaster's I've ever seen! Beautiful.

    That. Plus, surf green, then BB. Actually, there aren't many colors that don't look great on a Tele.

    Nothing fancy about my '70. Just a white blonde that's yellowed over the years. No grain, just paint. But, it's one of my favorite Tele colors. Not really even offered by Fender anymore, since the Lite Ash model, but a cool color.

    A black Thinline with the pearloid pick guard and a rosewood board. I like 'em sleazy.
