I picked up this Univox Custom 335 guitar on the cheap from a guy on CL the other day. Everything was a mess... Guy sanded off the finish (except the back for some reason) and slopped some crappy clear coat on it. 40 years of accumulated gunk and ignorance of how to treat a guitar really did a number on it. It still had the original strings when I bought it!

After it was all said and done, I realized that while the natural finish was cool in its own right, I want to do a cool semi period correct nitro finish to it. Here's the guitar:
I've been looking at reranch colors here: http://www.reranch.com/colors.htm
Specifically, I've been looking at lake placid blue metallic, vintage cream and daphne blue. I personally have a thing for metal flake finishes, but I'm open to anything. Lemme know what you think!
