I recently found this guitar, a Dean XM Vendetta, for $50 on Craiglist. It plays great, and sounds great. Its previous owner replaced the stock bridge pickup with a Duncan Detonator and put in a coil tap for the bridge. I plan on customizing this guitar until it looks nothing like it does now. For now, I plan on getting some vinyl inlays and a new truss rod cover off eBay. I'm also going to paint this bad boy up, and that's where you guys come in. I don't know what I should paint the body up as. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I also have never painted or refinished a guitar before, so I probably won't be able to do any complex stuff.

tl;dr, I need suggestions on painting the body of this guitar. Thanks.
