    Default The best color for a Strat

    Some people like thier Strats black.

    Some like White. Some red.

    And some people prefer the natural beauty of a burst. And of course there are those that like the wilder, more custom colors, like Daphne blue, sonic blue, shell pink, surf green, seafoam green...

    But what about you? Do you read the entirety of the post at the beginning of a thread before you post a reply? Based on what I've seen, I suspect most of you don't. If you have actually read all of this, reply with "paisley" and then sit back and see how many people glance and the subject line alone and rush in to declare their favorite strat color.
    ---------------------------
    The most popular thread I've ever made was 1) a joke and 2) based around literally the most inane/mundane question I could think of. That says something about me, or all of you, or both.

    Pretty much anything except Paisley.
    I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.

    I would like Brad Paisley's Strat if he wasn't a Tele player.
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    Paisley.......FTW! Seriously though, I've grown more towards a nice quilted or flamed maple top with a nice trans finish on it over the years.

    It doesnt matter what color, because it looks best after years of rugged abuse when its so battle scarred and stained by coffee and bear that it just looks like an ancient piece of wood channeling the sounds of battles long forgotten under the Titans' rule

    gold sparkle.

    Bonamassa's strat that just sold at the Clapton auction is one of my all time favorites.
