Re: Which color would you choose?

I find the Ocean Turquoise Metallic extremely beatiful. I still haven't started painting my RG550 (too much other things to worry about atm), but that is roughly, if not exactly, the look I'm going for. I was kinda' into the JS90TH's paintjob, but OTM is looking slightly sexier.

But how does one go around and find all these awesome colours? I recently found a reseller of Duplicolor paints here in Sweden, but they only sell the boring colors. No chameleons or anything. Would it be possible to buy those colros directly from Suhr guitars or wherever they get their colours from?

Yeah, that's an awesome color. I've seen a photograph of a Suhr Standard in that color and it really looks wonderful. I'll see if I can find that particular photograph so you can see it.

lol Well, there has been a small change of plans. You see, I'm having a guitar made by Jaden, first. I'm still going to buy a Modern somewhere down the line, though. It's a wonderful guitar. All these new colors are really interesting. There are a lot and I'm very indecisive.

I don't know. I think Suhr makes their own, unique colors by mixing paints of certain manufacturers. But I'm not sure.

But once again, Inanimate, House of kolor really has cool paints, imo. In fact they also have a turqouise paint which I have a sample of that looks GREAT. Very deep and rich... It's quite something. I've considered getting a P-bass re-finished in that paint. It looks great.

I just looked in my HOK color chip book; the turquoise I mentioned is HOK Kosmic pearl KDP2007 Turqouise over a HOK BC25 black base. It's the coolest turqouise I've ever seen.

It's much sparklier than I imagined. I had a Squier Stagemaster once in a colour which was quite similar to that.

Yeah, the photos in the color chart don't always do justice to the colors. Or they seem darker or lighter. They also have this section on their site:

http://gallery.me.com/suhrguitars

You can see better photos of some of the colors there.

Yes, I have been checking out House of Kolor. I didn't find that particular colour which you mentioned, but I Googled it,and my jaw dropped! I also see that they have a distributor in Sweden.

EDIT: Wow, are those colours expensive or what!?

Yeah, they're very expensive. lol But they're worth it, imo. I've tried to capture the turquoise with my camera. Here's the best pic I managed to take:



It doesn't really do it justice. But it does show the richness of the color. If you move the color chip around in the light, it goes through all different kinds of hues. It's amazing.
