Let's get some arbitrary disgust and complaining up in here - let it all out, hahaha.

For me, it's LPB - it is the "sensibly priced mid-sized sedan" of fender custom colors.

What about you? You have to pick one.
For me it is antigua, but you didnt mention it. Hahaha.

My grandfather stuffed a guy’s guts back into the fellow’s body for me to have the right to wear his pink shirt while playing a pink Jaguar. Or is that too “nurse-like” to be “manly”?
Anyway, I’m not a fan of Fiesta Red.

If I ever saw a guitar in those new car colors I would Yak or hurl.

I think some are odd green, weird orange and military gun metal.

Inca Silver. For some reason, I don't like gray guitars.

I may change my vote to Shell Pink.

This coming from someone who has, on occasion, worn a pink shirt and pink tie with gray pants. Out in public. To church.

But I think it looks good on me. Just not on guitars.

Fiesta Red for me. Looks like it's made of cheap plastic IMO.

Not sure Antigua counts here - very few people like it.

I voted Fiesta Red too, for the same reason.
Though I am mighty tired of surf green. Often somebody wants something "different" and they paint or buy Surf Green. Every other "different" guitar is Surf Green.

BTW what is "foam green" and how does it compare to surf green?

That's a tough question because all of the colors listed look good. Antigua would be my least favorite by far. I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but it would be closely followed by a natural wood finish. I can't see one without thinking 1970's wood panelling.

My least favorite is the one I don’t have.
Seriously, I never cared for surf green but then I built one and absolutely love the color. Why would I choose a color I don’t like? It sounds just the same and the price was right . So once again, my least favorite is the one I don’t have

We need the ability to vote for more than one. I don’t like any and all metallic paint colors. I can say that about automobiles too. All of those beautiful colors and then mess them up with metal flakes.:mad:

Yeah, I agree that ordering black for a CS would be pretty lame, but fine on almost any production guitar. IMO

The reason I voted Black is because it hides wood grain. I have a genuine " Blackie" built from all Fender parts, replaced with genuine Fender pots / switch etc., I've had a 73 Black Telecaster, a black Ibanez Artist way back when, many other good guitars but only available in black here in Oz.
I love woods, I build in really good woods , pick my acoustics in East Indian Rosewood . Why hide such natural beauty with black paint and finish?
A LPB is hard to come by. Some female lawyer here owns a 62 slab board and it never gets played. Worth several thousands but I'll buy it someday as illness has shortened my lifespan.
