Its your guitar if your not worried about the resale value then why not. Not like its a 58 goldtop or something. And kinda hard to complain about a good free paint job.
Sounds pretty cool, and why not. Just don't do a transparent finish. They put a solid finish on for a reason; the wood was probably ugly or otherwise blemished.
It just doesnt have the nice arch top flame maple to it. But yea a solid color would be better.
