    I have a bass on deck for restoration. I have a "thing" about period correct colors.
    I'd love to do Shoreline Gold but the dang bass is an early 70's vintage.
    I have a list (thanks JohnK!) of options but I cannot find decent pictures of some of them.
    I am particularly interested Firemist Silver at the moment.
    I am not a huge fan of silver in general but I must admit that I am not certain that I have ever even seen an early 70's P in that color.
    Can anyone post a pic or three?

    Is this a good representation of the color? Looks pretty close the jazz above.

    Thanks!

    What do you think of Firemist Gold? It was used the same years as the silver. I personally like it better than Shoreline Gold or any silver.

    Here's a recent Wilkins Firemist Gold Metallic - but I dig the silver which at least from the pics has a green tint
