Where'd you get the Korina? looks like the same plank as my Tele.

I really rate Korina as a tonewood. :D

UK company - GB guitars (!).

Ok, in addition to the colours I listed (cheapest option to use what I have) I could also go Lake Placid Blue or Green Olive. But the paint I have really needs using

To be fair, painting a metallic on this wood will be a potential nightmare.

It’s more like a creamy burnt orange... It was my old original base for Fiesta red.

This is the way to go.

olympic white is the clear winner. So you're going with the orange then? In a parody of the last US election.... and not just the skin colour.

Oly white still in. But I am concerned about the black leaching from the korina. I’ll do some tests

To me that colour looks a lot like that old Gretsch you sold to Bender (I believe). Would look good on a strat with black binding and pickguard.

Ok clearly white Supremacism is not going to win this vote... even though its the best colour.
