What do you think is the best color for a swamp ash jazzmaster body to be in in terms of value? And how much do you think they would go for in terms of nitro? Your responses are very much appreciated and would help greatly.

That's one freaky avatar.

I voted 3-tone as well, though I have a soft spot for Lake Placid Blue as well.

How much do you think I could get for an ash jazzmaster body painted with 3 tone sunburst (nitro of course)? Ebay isn't raelly a good reference .I dont have one yet but I'd like to do a project and I know that I will end up selling it. I always do. I go thru guitars like I go thru women.(just kidding) But really Im always trading buying selling.

I think the best looking JM's and Jaguars are the burgandy mist, with a mint pickguard...It's much more rare & less cliche'.

I might be somewhat biased though, cuz I had a 64 sunburst Jag for 20 years & kinda got sick of looking at it.

G.A.S? I do really really like burgundy mist but have never tried it out. I have a 66 jag body that was refinished in the seventies(mocha) that I am painting RR dakota red. It was a brush on repaint.(they left the original sunburst center on it) The original solder is still intact and it even has ES carved under the original sunburst.
I have a 72 Mustang neck for it but im going to redo that too because the previous owner plugged the mounting holes and put reissue kluson tuners on it so it's not all original anyway. I want it all nitro damnit! so the point is I was going to paint it burgundy but.. I didn't.
I used to have a '64 duosonicII dakota red with aged pearl pickguard all original with white primer showing thru on all the worn spots and i'm pretty much replicating that guitar in a jag.
But instead of wearing it by hand i just put thin clear coats on so that it'll wear naturally like a vintage. I only put the clear coats on because i didn't want to sand thru the color and make it look like a cheap relic done wrong.
I traded that beautiful duosonic for some peice of crap mxican strat which was cracked. I thought it was great trade at the time..
Then realized I was a dumb goat and have been trying to buy my baby back but the guy I sold it to is a colloctor of course and he likes it too.
its like the story about the guy who loved the girl and let he go. pathetic.That guy who let her go was a friggin idiot and i was too for that trade.
Oh well, now I got a sweet jag in the making. it gives me the satisfaction i need... Very Happy

G.A.S. = Gear Acquisition Syndrome

I am a fan of the burst on the JM especially over ash. If you had an alder body I'd go straight solid color but if its got a nice grain I'd consider either burst or any trans finish. JMO.
