    (I wasn't quite sure where I should post this one, so if I'm wrong in posting it here, let me know.)

    I've just made the decision to repaint my Jazz, and I was wondering exactly where I might try looking to find the specific color I want, as well as what type of paint to buy. The color is very similar to the old Fender capri orange, but a bit darker. It's the color that Chris Wolstenholme of Muse has on his Jazz.

    Here's a pic:

    I was thinking auto body paint. That's what fender used to use. Last years ford paint.

    That Orang Orange is exactly what I'm looking for. I just ordered it and the nitrocellulose clear coat from that site. Thanks so much!

    Gracie's refinish nitro has Capri Orange as one of their colors. Redone two basses with their paint and am a proponent of it.
