Well, you could always do a stain insead, which i think would be a better idea, imo. But that's just because I want to do a stain. haha. Either way, good luck.

haha i was thinking that but yeah i dunno, i wish i had a maple neck then i could go with a clapton or gilmour theme but meh! it was £270 on ebay for a usa strat so i don't really care =p (the paint was knakered after a botched relic job hence the low price and desire for a refinish!)

^Blue guitars FTW!

blue is definitely my favorite color for guitars, but I say to a brighter color than sonic blue, its a little dull IMHO.

such as: (without quilt obviously)


or

(again without fancy grain)

if your going solid color how about Ferrari red. I know someone who works at Ferrari North America. I can get the hookup. have you seen the color shift Ferrari red, it goes from Ferrari red to a redish hot pink. it would totally make all your friends jealous.

do some EVH striping but in a different striping pattern and different collours.
something with green and white or black stripes would be awesome.

The quilt is what makes those guitars look good. That same colour would look completely different without it.

What do you mean by this? Do you mean you only want finishes that were available from Fender at some date in the past?
Or do you mean more generally that you want a a finish that is traditional for guitars in general (as opposed to swirl, stripes, holographic, etc.)?

What kind of wood and do you know how the grain looks?
