I recently saw an article on the three most popular colors for electric guitars and, before I even opened the link, I already knew the answer: white, black, and sunburst. Yep, that's it. Because we're just that boring.
Here you go: white, black, and sunburst all rolled into one.
My choices are not the most popular but, being the arbiter of objective truth, I give you the three best colors for electric guitars: surf green (I could also go with sea foam green), faded fiesta red (coral), and
Surf Green with a rosewood fretboard. Amazing.
Faded Fiesta Red (Coral). Too cool.
