    Hi guys, Im on the verge of ordering a double bound tele body, and would like to have some cool ideas on colors for the body.

    Im going to put gold hardwares, and possibly a black or white pickguard. I have a rosewood neck that I will put on it.

    I love 60's custom colors, Fiesta Red, Shell Pink, etc.. I've thought about Shoreline gold, but it might be too much gold???? LOL

    I did look on google images, but I was wondering if you guys did something crazy and cool, and I can be inspired upon.

    Thank you in advance! I appreciate it!

    Black, Olympic White and Sherwood Green look cool with gold hardware, IMO.
    Good luck!

    Sherwood Green and gold is pretty bad arse looking. Stained green or red with gold hardware also looks pretty sweet too.

    i think gold hardware on sunburst with a dark neck is top tele. once my warmoth neck comes in with gold frets, and roasted maple/rosewood, all the hardware on my tele will be gold.

    One of my plans is for a La Cab thinline in shell pink w/ rosewood or equivalent fingerboard, and gold hardware.
