  • What color of 2 Fender American Standard Stratocasters should I pick from?

    I placed a order to buy a 2012 Fender Anerican Standard Stratocaster and should have it by Weds from Music123.

    When I first placed the order I thought I was getting a 2012 Fender American Standard in the Color of Charcoal Frost Metallic Maple Fingerboard for $691.28

    But I checked my Order on Music123 a few mins later and Found out they screwed up and was sending me a 2012 Fender American Standard Stratocaster 3-Tone Sunburst Maple Fingerboard,

    Anyways Could not Cancel the Guitar and have to refuse it when UPS brings it along with the charcoal one that I also paid $691.28 for....

    Now I am wondering what Color should I really get?

    Yes the 3-Tone Sunburst is listed $50 more then the rest of the Strats but

    I do have a pick of 3-Tone Sunburst or Charcoal.........JT

    Whichever you like better. Aesthetically I prefer rosewood with Sunburst so I'd probably go for the Charcoal frost with the maple board.

      Charcoal. There are millions of bursts out there. Be different.

            As stated before, Charcoal is a fabulous strat colour, bursts are a dime a dozen.
            One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?

                Darcoal is too dark for me.

                  Will be last time I post this..........

                  Hellomusic.com have these for $849 and using the coupon (saturday100} will bring the Strat down towards $749.

                  Now Call Music123.com and NOT too email them and get the Price down towards $691 with their 123% discount after

                  their price match........A few got the Strat for $691 and a few others paid $725 with free shipping from Music123.

                  It depends on how many salespeople you want too call.(Once they are sold out at Hellomusic.com then the deal will be gone.......JT

                    Never heard of it before, but I just checked...



                    That Charcoal color is awesome.

                      Play 'em both and keep the one that really speaks to you. Either way, it's a win-win.

                              Tri color burst w/maple. Get it in your hands and feel the power of a fully operational tri color burst American Standard Stratocaster with maple fret board. Trust your feelings. Don't fall to the dark side.
