I have two.. my first is an all orig black 70's American Strat. Second is a 2008 Malmsteen in the signature cream color. This color is actually more yellow than I would like it to be. A friend of mine years ago had a 70's cream colored strat and it was much whiter than my guitar, that color would get my vote.

Cheers!

Hard question, they all look so nice.

But I have a thing for white Strat with rosewood fingerboard, and I own one. Sunburst is always a classic, and the newer bursts and metallic colours are stunning.

The only finish I dislike is black, I just don´t like black guitars.

My favourite one that I own!
[attachment=24793:72_with_Dimarzios.jpg]
This was a 3 tone sunburst of 1972 vintage!

I also like the SRV/ Rory Gallagher ones, but if I was to have a new one I think I'd be tempted by either the Bonnie Raitt signature Blue or a Sea Foam Green one!!!

Fiesat Red is awesome, my dad once had one in his The Shadows revival band...too bad my mom and I had to sell it when he died, but money was a big issue at that time and that baby was worth the most by far...
Anyway, I still got a silver one from my dad, I like the color very much as well.
And of course this one:

My favorite color is the one I have on my Highway One Strat: three tone sunburst in satin nitrocellulose finish. The satin finish gives it a lot of character biggrin.gif I changed the white pickguard for a black one, I think it really emphasizes the burst the finish. Whats funny is the cheapest US made Strat was made exactly how I would've ordered it from a custom shop, with the three tone sunburst, maple fretboard, jumbo frets, satin nitro finish, and 60's/70's headstock. Just saved myself at least a grand biggrin.gif I am changing out the pickups for a set of D.Allen HotVintage 54's and a Duncan JB in the bridge. The stock ones are ok, but they don't sparkle, and can't really handle metal wink.gif

I love vintage Fiesta Red, Black looks classy, Surf Green and Dafne Blue are so 60ties,

and of course, my all time favorite, vintage one tone sunburst cool.gif biggrin.gif
