I'm about to buy a mexican Fender Standard Telecaster but I don't know what colour to buy it in...

I was thinking Arctic White and i could get a black scratchplate

or

Electron Blue

If anyone has these guitars on real pics so i can compare real life colour as i know it's different to internet images.

Cheers

White was my second choice next to Midnight Wine on my tele, so glad I went with midnight wine. Such a sexy guitar.

Fender's Electron blue finish seems to vary a lot. The Electron Blue on MIA Fenders seems to be a fairly bright mid-blue, the Electron Blue on MIM Fenders has a slight green tint to it, and on older MIMs it looks like it has a bit of a purple tint. It's pretty useless looking at pictures, you need to get to the store and look at it yourself.

White with a black pickguard is definitely an always solid way to go, just bear in mind that Arctic White doesn't always look completely white. Since it's just plain white, when you get regular light on it it can look like it has a bit of a cream tint to it, like Vintage/Antique/Aged white does. Olympic White is another shade of white that Fender does guitars in, they add a tiny amount of blue to it so in regular light the blue counters the yellow of the light and it remains loking bright clear white. It may be worth looking to see if the model of guitar you want is available in Olympic White instead of Arctic White since many people prefer Olympic White.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
