Hi there, I am getting a fender highway one strat with a rosewood fretboard, what colour should I get - Black or Sunburst (considering the finish is thin satin and wears easily).

Thanks.

Black.

Also, where's the poll?
And this kind of thread is becoming way too common.

Sunburst. It looks way more timeless!

Depends on the Strat. There are many Sunburst ones that just look bad, but there are many that look very good. On the other hand, all Black Strats look the same (mostly).
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Black is way too standard. To me, a Strat always looks best in Suburst.

I think it's a great idea to ask us what color would be best for you to own and look at and play

I prefer sunburst, but you should probably know what color you like more.....

Sunburst - looks way better and looks better much longer than greased up, finger printed, sweated on black.
But whatever you like best man

Sunburst for me anyday.
