Just a bit of fun / curiosity really. Should be self-explanatory:

Black, especially for a jazzmaster.

Depends on the color, year, aging I guess. I really like some vintage Lake Placid Blues (Reranch has a great one - have a Jag in Reranch LPB), but the modern color doesn't do anything for me. Sherwood and Ocean Turquoise can also be gorgeous when done right. I settled on Daphne Blue since it's the one that probably looks best to my eye whether vintage or modern.

I think if I ever had the money for a CS or a Danocaster or something of the sort, it'd be ocean turquoise, either a JM or a Tele. So I guess that's it.

Very tough to decide so I went with my initial fave, Daphne Blue. Other faves include Surf Green, Fiesta Red, Sherwood Green, Ocean Turquoise, Shell Pink, and Shoreline Gold.

Daphne blue, and if Tort is present then Oly White.
Is this signature offset?

Some absolute rippers there, but my most favourite is now Mystic Seafoam. Wow.

Sorry!!! There was only room for 20 options, so I went with what I see most (also had to cut Teal Green)

Had to vote for Sherwood, though LPB is a close second.

It's between LPB, OTM, or Sherwood Green, but my heart went with LPB.

Lake Placid Blue, Sherwood Green, and Burgundy Mist. I’ve always wanted a Jazzmaster in each color.

No love for Dakota Red or the Firemist twins. Sad.
I'm sure some Fender dealer in '64 looked at the new Duo-Sonic II and thought, "That's not a Duo-Sonic. That's a Mustang".

Lots of great Fender colors, but I’m a sucker for most of the metallics. Especially burgundy mist, firemist silver, and firemist gold. Also into charcoal frost metallic when it has started to green and turn that sort of green-ish metallic color.
