    ok...the time has come to decide on finished for my project.. it is going to be jazz-ish looking... different pickguard style (probably mother of pearl). I like the ash body but there are too many blems to keep it natural. the neck is maple on maple...,
    the options are:
    -daphne blue w/ matching headstock and racing stripes (like mustang)
    -seafoam green w/ matching headstock and racing stripes
    -gold top gold w/ matching head stock
    -other (please specify)
    tell me what you think...
     
  2. Must be Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock...

    Racing stripes?? Is that supposed to make you play faster? I vote seafoam green!

    Well, removing the "speed bumps" only really improves slide speed, it's not supposed to make you faster :smug:

    BLUE! or even ROYAL BLUE go well with mop-pg

    That could be nice! even better with a purple mirror or pearloid(if exists) guard. Fiesta Red could be nice as could purple but... SEAFOAM.

    I don't understand this obsession with seafoam, it's absolutely hideous! :spit:
     
  12. Seafoam Green is an AWESOME colour. It looks especially nice when submerged in about 5 metres of water in the Great Barrier Reef. Fish dig it! :D :D

    How about Dolphin Grey?? The specific color can be found on an Audi A4 as well as other Audi models. It's different but still jazzy
