I'm building a strat from warmoth.com, and i've narrowed it down to two colors for the body, Surf Green and Olympic White. I figured i'd get the good people on UG to help me out, what do you think?

I have decided on a Pearloid pickguard, and the neck will be maple, so the neck will look like it does in the second photo.

The Surf Green has a more '50s vibe to it, imo, and the White is more kind of '60s. I might just be thinking that because Hendrix used a white one at Woodstock, but w/e.

Important question: which do you prefer?

I personally would go for the white one, but it's your guitar, and it has to suit your style

Well thats the tricky thing, I love them both, I love the 50's surf era feel, but i'm a big Hendrix fan also, so either one would suit the guitar very well. I'm planning on putting a pearloid pickguard on her, but that would go with both colors, so that doesn't help either. I've debated it to death with myself, i've literally stayed up nights thinking about it, but I can't get myself to come right down to it and pick, so now i'll trust you guys.

Personally if I had to I'd go for white, but I don't like either of those.

At all.
Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

Are you getting it painted from warmoth, or doing it yourself?

Well I was going to say Sea Foam Green when I saw the topic title but then I saw you had choices. So go for Surf Green, it's old school.
#17
I've already made up my mind on the pickguard, its pearloid, if you go to warmoth you can see what i mean, i think it would look really good on it, even if it doesnt ill just order another pickguard, no biggie. I'm getting them to paint it, i'm not trusting myself with that. Thanks for the input thus far, lets keep it goin, i'm not ordering it for a little bit, so we'll see whos in the lead when i have to make the choice.

I hate to say it, but chances are the only thing good about that amp is the fact that the name looks a lot like the word "laser"...

Check out my band!
