Hello folks. Im a longtime lurker here, but I think this may be my first post on this forum. Looking for some opinions on a refinish project. I'll start this off by saying that Im generally a vintage Gibson guy and know more about their vintage finishes than Fender's, but I have a basic knowledge and have owned several vintage Fenders. I found a stripped out 1966 Tele that Im going to have made into my "perfect" Tele for me. I know what I want hardware-wise, but Im unsure about the finish. Being a '66 the odds are highly in favor of this originally being a blond finished guitar. Ive had a '66 before that had its original blond finish and it was great, but given that I have a blank slate to work from it would be cool to do a finished guitar that I'd never be able to afford normally. I love Gibson's Pelham Blue and Inverness Green finishes and how they yellow out and patina over time. From some pics Ive seen the closest Fender equivalents would be the metallic colors like Ice Blue or maybe Firemist Silver. Im really open to anything though, as long as it is vintage period correct for a Tele. FWIW - the guy who will refinish it sticks to period correct colors. Let me know what you think! Thanks!
