no, daphne blue is a "normal" color but pelham blue is a "pearlecent" color also daphne blue is a bit lighter and has a bit of a yellow tint in the paint, while pelham blue is a medium blue

I like a metallic blue, or white. Maybe a cream color too.
How about that Pelham blue with some sparkles tossed in the paint mix?
While I do like the red and black, they are just far too common.

Lucky bastard. I plan to make a G400 my next guitar purchase.

I dont know that metallic flakes would work with a pearl color, the clear coats are different, its pretty much one or the other.

Don't get latex paint. I made that mistake.
But if you can get a green stain, it looks phenomenal.

flat black with chrome hardware and a maestro. And get the neck inlayed with crosses. and learn to play left handed. and grow your hair really long.
#17
lime green with pink on the horns just think how cool it would look or chrome/silver paint
#18
you could just do black, and paint the bevels. I think cream might look quite nice, that's what they use on vintage "Meatal Axxe" guitars.

Stain it dark purple
