    This thread makes me crave ice cream. And a bigger guitar stand.

    Shell pink over sonic blue, no clear coat. This is an older picture, it now has a single coil in the bridge

    I have three Shell Pink, one Cream (they call it “Vintage White”), a Fiesta Red, and a Burgundy Mist - all Fenders. I also have Candy Tangerine and Orange Flake, both of which are (to me) stunning. This is Candy Tangerine, my go-to stage guitar. It sports a prototype ground-glass pickguard given to me as a gift.

    Started as a black strat. Custom refinish by a client of mine who does high-end auto paint restoration. I had him use the actual surf green paint code from a ‘57 Chevy, and he added that 3D metallic flake effect for some sparkle :)

    That is a cool pick guard! What's the story behind it?

    American Original 50’s in ash blonde nitro. Wearing in nicely. Kept out of sun so far so not yellowing. Sweat and oil from skin causing finish to darken and show more grain near forearm carve. Love it.
    Oh… and it plays and sounds killah

    Partscaster I built around 15 years ago. Home Depot rattle can paint, I don't remember what brand or color it was but pretty close to sonic blue.

    I just finished this custom finish. It's swamp ash with shell pink and black stain/grain fill two-tone. I couldn't decide, so went with both :)

    If I had Photoshop I'd drop these in a big Easter basket.
