Daphne and maple is nice too
3 tone sunburst always looks good with rosewood board. Classic.
I went with Fiesta Red. Everybody and their mother has a sunburst or white Strat. I think the custom colors are cool.
If it was a maple FB model, I would likely have said one of the blues or greens.
Want to be extra awesome? Have it done in thin flaky nitro over a sunburst.
Thinking I'd go shell pink, just cause,, it's different.
I've got an idea:
Keep it original.
None. Sherwood Green.
What was the original colour when it was built in 1964? I would go with that colour tbh...unless it was a goddamn awful colour.
I like an Olympic White Strat myself...which is why i have a Custom Shop '62 Reissue one myself!
I voted black, but fiesta red is mighty fine too...
I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was probably sunburst. That was my first thought as well, but then realized it will never be the original finish, so I might as well go with whatever I like most.
So, what's it going to be?
Still not 100% decided yet, but I think I'm gravitating toward Surf Green now, with Foam Green being second and Burgundy Mist now being third instead of first.
Yeah on the Fiesta Red! Hank would be proud!
Of course Candy Apple Red always gets my vote, LOL!!
Here is a Burgundy Mist sample just in case you are still on the fence with this one. I will get some in natural light in the morning.
burgundy mist or even better, shell pink!
i voted for sea foam but after seeing it why not leave it?....
it is yours but dam its nice as is...
i smell pitchforks and torches coming
* EDIT; " The body was refinished in a pretty thick poly in the '80s and I've always sort of wanted to get a better job done."
didnt see this before but still maybe i would leave it anyway but if not sea foam green, torches and pitchforks put away for other threads....
I would do Shell Pink over Surf Green
I was going to say "It's a '64, leave the freak alone!" - but as it seems to already have been molested, well, everybody knows the only colors for a Strat are natural, 3TSB, and CAR - and I have seen pre-CBSs in CAR.
Though I suppose Sherwood Green would be OK if you kept the parchment on it.
As to Burgandy Mist, I went to college with a guy who had a '59 in BM (back when a '59 was just an old guitar.....) and I have to say, that color is Just Wrong.
Well, I finally voted in my own poll and chose Surf Green, which was my #2 when I started the thread. I think this really did help with the selection process. Thanks to everybody for their thoughts/votes!
Personally, I say leave it alone. Even molested, it's pretty the way it is.
Surf Green is going to look amazing!
