I'm buying a Fender HSS Stratocaster but I can't decide on what colour to buy?
The options are: Arctic White, Black, "Midnight Wine" and Brown Sunburst. I will be buy a Strat with a maple neck btw

I'd go to a local store and just play a bunch of MIM HSS' and see which one feels the best, and buy regardless of finish.

Amongst those though, Arctic White. By far one of the best strat finishes IMO.

With a maple fingerboard? Hmm tough call, I love maple fngerboards but if its a white body then a rosewood board with it looks awesome, its the contrast. I've always like the 3 tone burst cause it works well with either board and is such a classic Strat look. Then again maple on white is very Hendrix-like

Midnight Wine or Black FTW!
I think the red sunburst on MIA strats is the best colour ever though.
