OPINIONS PLEASE

I'm about to do a Tele for myself and I really don't want to do the usual Butterscotch, even though I LOVE that color ... I just want to do something a little different ... I'm thinking of adding a humbucker in the neck and maybe even a bigsby ... now I just need a color. Right now I am leaning towards a seafoam green or surf green ... I'm also going to do a relic job on it so keep that in mind ...

SO ... what color would you all like to see?

As always ... input is much appreciated.

I love 'em all, but I'd have to go with surf green. The page that PCH linked has 315 Teles with Bigsbys and not a single one in surf green. (One says surf, but it's different) Although sonic blue looks great reliced, so does shell pink,.......and dakota red. Hey, we're right back at one of each.
