    hi,

    i have a black MIM P and i'd like to refinish it with a thin
    coating (wearing expected..)

    i just cant decide between these two colours - cream white and red-brown.. with a brown tort pguard.

    i already yellowed position markers and maple on the neck by UV light, it looks good.

    what do you think about it ?

    thanks,

    mike

    its rosewood, you are right, red/brown would be better for maple. i wanna make it a (not the most serious) relic and i was thinking of spraying few coats of automotive spray-paint. im gonna sand this awful thick poly finish down gently first.

    I'll tell ya what I did on an old 64 Strat I had ... got with a friend of mine at an auto body shop and asked him to let me know when he was shooting a color like I wanted on a car. I had the body all prepped and ready for him (check to see how they want it) and gave him a 50 to shoot the body ... came out great, in this case a nice Sherwood green metallic. I didn't have to buy paint or clearcoat he just shot it with the leftovers. Totally pro job.
