    I'm thinking I'll probably be sending the loaded body your way soon. Let me know how you like those new formulations that you were looking into.

    In my mind there's only 2 ways to go That's a 3 tone burst or a Fiesta red.With the fiesta i would lean more to a faded fiesta/coral.
    Olympic white as to be the most boring color in the world, I've done many Olympic white and after finishing wonder why i choose that color. IMHO there a few color that come across nicely in doing refins. what i mean is believable.

    I finally took the plunge and sent the loaded body to @BadMojo Vintage Makeovers for a Surf Green refin a few days ago. I'll update the thread with progress photos for those who want to follow along. It arrived yesterday, went through disassembly today, and should be getting stripped tomorrow. Gulp.

    I don't vote for ANY of those.

    I vote for Candy Apple Red!

    I used to have one of these and sold it, here it is. Was beautiful, had a red coat over a gold base coat.

    Razzle, it's been settled... it's on its way to get green.


    I don't understand why it's getting refinished. But.....as long as it is being painted with an opaque color, I find the choice acceptable.

    It appears as though someone a couple of owners ago had a patriotic streak before someone else had it slathered in gray primer and cream poly...

    This was definitely an interesting find. I saw patches of red and was thinking to myself, this guitar was originally Fiesta Red.. than I saw the star and it made sense.

    Great guitar with some history behind it. I should have some updates for you all by the end of next week. ;)

    Just got an update from Andy. The primer is on and color has been sprayed. Still needs clear, but it's starting to come together!

    I want to get my 94 CS sprayed graffiti yellow or shell pink. My favorite guitar. But I'm bored with the white finish. This looks great so far.
