I have a much loved but sadly beaten up Epiphone Explorer in a very rare colour and I was planning on getting it refurbed to its original glory,

Like this



I then also thought that it would be damn near impossible to get it to the original colour at anything like a reasonable cost as it would have to be sourced from Gibson which means $$$$$


So I am throwing it open to you guys to come up with sensible or mental finishes I could get instead..


Use that pic as a template if you want or other pics form the web.

I promise that I will get it refinished in whatever wins

You have until 12pm UK time tomorrow


EDIT:

this is why it needs a respray




Fairly epic declouration right there...

Jizz on it.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.

Well I have a strat in the rare color "Aztec Gold/Green" It's like a green version of your finish.

Or you can try this awesome purple color.

THis is the color of my strat. Aztec gold appears to be a "golder" version of this.

I was thinking a flake orange but I suck at photoshop.. Similar to a new start that's out (which I'm quite into).

played at least 200 gigs and played it every day for 7 years....

yeah i saw the orange flake on a strat near me, was prety funky, i was thinking maybe a deep blue would look quite good?

Ah I see...that would explain it.

I've always liked the bottom right colour on guitar.

The yellow with the stripe is awesome.. But my suggestion would be take that yellow and have a couple of black speed stripes down the center. The pickguard might clash though

These are sweet. Rock Guitars, perhaps, is the color most unlikely to be seen on an Explorer, tho.

Exactly why he should get it. He'd be the only one with it.

I've seen camo guitars before though. Not exactly too exciting, but it's still pretty cool.
