What's your favourite stratocaster colour?

Mine is seaform green and daphne blue I'm in the process of painting a maple fretboard strat, and I need some colour idea's that will go with it :p I might even do a swirl colour, so you can also choose up to 3 colours that go well together. Thanks!

Candy Apple Red is my favorite with a maple board, followed closely by Black and Olympic White. A Dakota Red/Olympic White/Navy Blue swirl would be a nice play on the Union Jack.

Olympic White with a white pickguard, and a nice shiny maple neck. Second would be Candy Apple Red with a white guard and maple neck. Classic headstock.

3 tone sunburst, like I have. After that I like the whites, red, and black. Although the black does look cliche because it's probably the color most off brand strats have.

the guitar on the left is a 1982 Peavey USA Horizon II, sharp guitar though.
