    don’t know exactly what the model is, but the local music store has a coral strat that is really calling my name!

    Yep, they used to buy paint from an auto supplier.

    Leo bought paint from GM that was left over from production runs for cheap.

    In the early day's you could actually go to the factory and custom order any color. I've seen some odd (extremely rare) '50s custom color guitars.

    While my favorites are both black, and a nicely aged vintage white, I've always been partial to Daphne Blue. I've never really cared for blue guitars (or cars), but there's something special about that color for me (on both a guitar & a car).

    I've always wanted a super strat in one of those vintage traditional strat colors, like the surf green or sonic blue, hell, even the faded pink would be cool.

    Not a traditional colour, but the MIM Sage Green gets me in. I reckon a mint green pickguard with maple neck (57 spec'd be nice) would work [​IMG]

    For Strat's, the Vinsanitizer prefers vintage white, Daphne Blue and Surf Green, and maple necks. :yesway:
