I'd do a dark natural stain, like a walnut or coffee.

I think one of the old Fender customs colors would be really cool: Shell Pink (!), Seafoam Green, Sonic Blue, maybe Fiesta Red? For me, the pointed-horn thing is SG-esque enough that walnut or trans cherry would feel a bit predictable. I can't see myself ever saying no to a goldtop, though.

The second one did, I still have this one though! The second was supposed to be cleaner hence why I wanted to refin this one!

Ah! So are you still planning to refinish this one?

Necro bump hahaha

I am still throwing around a refin idea, Im also thinking of adding a jazzmaster tremolo and re drilling the studs for a jazzy bridge as well!

I'm all about matte, hand rubbed oil type finishes. Cheap, doesn't require alot of tools, time, space, clean up, experience, or patience. Looks great. Feels great. (and lighter finish = toanz, if you believe in that sort of thing)
