Well this body I got from Doug is for my dad. It's ready for primer, and I need to pick a color. I've always loved Ice Blue. I love how it looks silver at one angle and light blue at another. Then there is Ocean Turqoise. It's grown on me. Looks like Lake Placid, then you turn your head and it goes almost Sherwood on you. What to do, what to do? Rolling Eyes

I can't ask my dad which he likes best, and it would be pointless. He'd say they both look good. Plus it would ruin the surprise. So I ask my Reranch brother's for your assistance. And to really mix it up, I'm also considering Shoreline or Copper metallic as well. And don't get me started on the maple or rosewood thing.

Ocean Turqoise with mint pg, is the choice. As of this post it is 100%, so the poll is closed. JK, Laughing Laughing Laughing Any color you choose, I bet your dad would approve of your efforts.

Ice, definitely. Matched headstock is essential as well.

I think:

Ocean with mint guard, RW board, and a matching headstock. That would be killer!

I voted IBM/parchment (thinking the bound neck will look better with that combo)

... but the OT/mint is a very close second.
