I am ready to paint my new Esquire project, I know it is going to be atleast part surf-green with a vintage mint pickguard, But I was thinking kindof a sunburst style with CORAL in the center,front and back,maple fretboard, matching headstock. What do you think ? Too Danelectro-ly ? Just thought I would bounce this off you pros out there....

With respect, I ain't feelin' it. I dig surf green, coral not so much.

Of course it would be unique. Wink

The proper name for that thing would be "watermeloncaster."
