How about a (Bill's) translucent blueburst. I have one and it looks awesome! Pearloid white pickguard and gold hardware. Mock one up on the custom usa guitar virtual guitar builder and check it out!

You have to post pics of it! Bluebursts are some of my favorites! The one in my avatar will become one.

I actually just added a few clearcoats to it because it was wearing through on the edges, and I needed to get more clear on it. I will need to wait until the clearcoat completely cures (another few weeks before I can polish it up. I will try to post pictures after I am done. Mine actually has black hardware and pickups in it. Looks great!

I'm very close to 100% sure that I will do it in MK White. The bloody weather here in San Diego (yes, the most "perfect" weather in the world) has been either a) raining or b) humid. Neither which is good spraying weather. I'll have to wait a couple more weeks for this thing to die down but man I hate it.

Sharkydude's MK is otherworldly. It looks like it was created by an advanced species of beings. I don't normally go for gold, but I like it with anything white. The Gretsch White Falcon looks so Hollywood 1950s. You'd almost have to press your shirts just to hold the thing.

Hold on--so you can make a Mary Kay using Shell Pink? Sounds like a sales incentive for a cosmetics company. I wonder how that would look with gold hardware.
