Post a few pics of your work if you're able.

A lot of guys will want a very thin, faded nitro finish in old DuPont colours. Well, some will. Be worth offering.

There are thousands :lol:

So, if I said Fender Sonic Blue or Metallic Lake Placid Blue you could do a perfect match to the original Fender colour?

The colours started out on cars anyhow. metallic lpb is a 50's cadi colour.

Perfect match like on the 60s reissue, on the 2004 American standard, or in the brochure?

Struggling to find this color on my system. Especially because it’s a DUCO paint not DuPont and I’m working with PPG Envirobase.

On the other hand, I’ll keep looking but what would definitely speed up a process is a sample. Reaching.. I know.

maybe get Conway involved as a consultant, I`ll take the usual finders fee.

anyhoo, vintage white is the best colour for guitars. BY FAR!

personally I'd take PPG water based over nitro in a heartbeat.
