I'm just curious what folks think - I just ordered a Warmoth poplar tele body and will soon order a USACG neck. It will have your basic 'standard' tele appointments more or less - control plate, pickguard, vintage style bridge yadda yadda. I wanna talk about paint. I have long GASed, for whatever reason, for a Sherwood Green w/ white racing stripes tele. I am thinking of finally doing it. I think I have the basic idea but obviously the execution of it is harder than some other finishes. My other two ideas are either: Candy Apple Red (hard) or basic white with a a shiny pickguard, either red pearl or gold anodized (easy). I have done a few rattle can nitro finishes, it was years ago but I got the basic idea. So, what would you do, and how hard, really, is it to do racing stripes or candy apple, relatively speaking? I have read the basic rundowns on how to get these finishes but it's hard to get a sense of the difficulty of making it look great. Thanks in advance for any replies.
