Butterscotch and blonde over ash. Olympic white with rosewood and black with maple for opaque colors.

Fiesta Red would be cool in my book.

Blond on maple, Red on maple go together nicely

shoreline or firemist gold go well with maple or rosewood

I would have to say those are my favorites...I have all those combinations except for the red body on maple....

My current Tele stable includes a 3 tone sunburst and a double bound thinline in seafoam green. Both maple (I have no use for rosewood on a Tele). IF I were to lose both of these guitars I think I'd build a butterscotch/blackguard with a ginormous neck. I love fiesta red on Strats but for some reason it seems misplaced on a Tele to me.

edit to add: I would also love a copper Tele.

Blonde on rosewood followed closely by Fiesta Red on rosewood. Both with a parchment pickguard.

I have a midnight wine tele with maple board, but my favorite is butterscotch with tort guard and maple board.

I think that 52RI Coppercasters are the coolest Telecaster 'look' of all - and I'm pretty sure that puts me squarely in the minority.

I don't have one (yet).

It's not just good..

...it's good enough.

Silver sparkle, black binding, white pickguard, and maple neck.
Essentially, just like Don Rich's Telecaster.

And maybe someday I'll own one.

I'm also quite partial to White Blonde - I have both a Thinline Cabronita and a Jazzmaster in that color.

Maple neck: butterscotch or blonde on ash body.

Rosewood neck: Sherwood Green. Mmmmmm. Always wanted one, could never find one.
