    How about: black with anything, royal blue with white, seafaom green with white, sunburst with black, blond with black, natural ash with all three, candy apple red [or blue] with white, ocean turquoise with white [never seen this on a bass yet] white with black and stripped modified and covered with stickers. :D

    That's a classic. I switched out the pickguard for the standard control plate type with a red tortoise pickguard and it looks pretty sweet.

    Then there's the natural finish with maple fb. My personal fav especially with black block inlays (hence I own it :p).

    I see these most, along with the standard tobacco sunburst and rosewood fb.
     
  8. My favs in no order really are....

    Black with tort
    White with mirror
    White with tort
    Lake placid blue with white pearloid or mirror
    Chrome red or Crimson or Candy apple red with mirror or black or white pearloid
    Sunburst with black
    Sunset orange with tort

    Red colours on basses are my fav though...so i would probally lean towards red before any other choices.

    Candy apple with white pickguard, and sunburst without a pickguard, or with a black pickguard.

    Sherwood Green with matching head is my favorite Fender color. Olympic white with a tort guard is right up there too.
