Pretty much that. I'm not happy with the colors in which American Standards are coming out at the moment.

Do they introduce new colors every year or how often do they change them? Sorry for my english and thanks.

None of the manufacturers - including Fender - have a set schedule for introducing new colors. They come out with new ones when they discover a color that they like, or when their marketing research people tell them that a particular color is popular with buyers and that their guitars would sell better if they made them in that color.

Your English is just fine, by the way.

whenever they feel like. Guitars usually come out in pretty standard colors. you got your whites, blues, blacks, greens, reds.

Most of the fancier stuff is custom shop.

What color are you looking for in particular?

Basically whenever the research they do shows that a certain colour is popular, and will sell well.
Also your English is fine.

The whites blacks and sunbursts are getting kind of boring imo.

Have you seen the new American Deluxe Tungsten finish? Pretty original and sexy as hell.

They don't come out that often. Every Fender has a certain style associated with it. Standards are more conservative. The Deluxes typically have things like pearloid and tortoise shell pickguards and shinier and less-traditional finishes. If they come out with new colors don't expect them to step out of those boundaries unless it's a limited edition.

I'd love them to reissue some surf green, daphne/sonic blue, 50s esque colors. I'd jump on that in a heart beat.

The American Standards only get new colours roughly once every two years, or whenever they change the construction/spec of the American Standard itself (e.g. new pickups, new bridge, etc). Many years ago they would cycle which colours they were using but these days they have just a few colours that they produce for a couple of years. If you want other colours then you need to go to the Fender Custom Shop. That is where they make their new finishes and they'll make any guitar in any finish you want. Their prices start at £1800 GBP for a regular Strat in a custom finish, which isn't bad compared to most Custom Shops.

Love the surf green. Prefer the headstock plain, though.

I have nothing to add for the TS except that his english is better than half that I read from english folks.

Actually I was looking for a natural finish but all I could find were either MIM strats or 1970 relics for $2600.. Unless I missed something?

I dont get why some cool colors just come in the MIM version..

A good thing to do is look used, or look in guitar shops. Occasionaly, you'll find they'll have a few one off colours and things which is pretty cool.

Oh yeah, the sparkly gray type of finish? THat is sort of getting old too. I think that Fender is making themselves look too clean and whatnot. If you look at their website, it totally contradicts what I think of Fender, which is finding old, very nice strats and things in various shops and them sounding great. Now they seem like mass produced, boring pieces of slab wood where all the necks feel the same and all the bodies look the same.

Sometimes they'll release a limited color quarterly or every six months. You have to check Guitar Center for their exclusives, as well. Sometimes they have colors MF doesn't. That said, sometimes MF has colors that Guitar Center doesn't.

dont most guitar companies have guitars that look all the same honestly i find more diversity in fender than in bc rich or ibanez. sure they have a basic template but so does every guitar company and yeah cheap fenders are slabs of wood but if you spend a good amount you get a good guitar you know? think its like that with everything. nothing good is ever free.

I really want a green guitar. Like an epiphone les paul that's green would be my dream guitar. When are they going to make those again??

Really wish the classic player series would get more colours, only two for each type and pretty generic.

leo took all the cool colors with him to g and l.

alternatively if for some strange reason you have to have to have a fender you can get it refinished for like 100 bucks.
