nah dont like that colour much :P

but i like blue cus its my fav colour

and wine red just goes great with a les paul
just search google "red wine les paul"

that blue appears to be a burst (light - dark blue)
I'd say the light blue solidly across the body would be your coolest option
you could just use kisake or something to see what different colours would look like though?

i know there isn't a les paul but it has the veneer options etc for you to check it out

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

sounds interesting....
why a strat hardtail bridge instead of a TOM though?
i suppose you don't have to worry about a neck angle that way....

Blue, blue is always best IMO. Never really seen a guitar where I dont think blue would look best.

Out of those 2 I'd say the blue, but i don't know how hard it'd be to make it look that nice.
There be no shelter here.
#14
okk ive come to this, maybe

blue on the cap but wine red on the back and sides

whats the best way to do this w/o having to do a burst (the guitar will be rounded over with a router insted of binded
#15
Are you sure you don't want to do a burst? It would be ****in sick to have a 2 color burst with royal blue in the center and wine red around the outside.

If I had to pick between red and blue: blue.
If it were my guitar: white or purple.
