Paint suggestions

Hey, i just got a bare wood JEM ready to get painted, was going to chrome it, but not too sure anymore... If anyone has a nice chromed guitar please tell me bout it. But anyways, since thats not working, i need some ideas on what to do... i was thinking of just painting it black like the jem10th... Any ideas? thx

I'd leave it the way it is. No paint at all.

And then there is the swirl of course...

Stain It With Coffee & then seal it with any water based satin clearcoat.

yea im trying, but there are only 2 people who chrome guitars, and thats ggg and simsled and sims is 2x the amount ggg does it for, and ggg sucks... so its kind of a hard decision... not only that, a lot of money...

I'd paint it florescent green, and put a black pickguard on it. Kind of like this, but instead of pink and orange, I would go with a straight green/black motif:

dang that trem bar stuck between the trem n body is a good/bad idea... good caz u have a "fixed" bridge, and you have ur trem bar whenever u dont want a fixed bridge, but at the sametime it's bad for your body...
well i've been thinking and i got several good ideas for my body... thinking of making more than 1 guitar now... just need the money!!! haha... thx!
