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.

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.
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

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.
