Customising my RG550

I've recently bought an RG550, early 90s with the old style neck joint & Lo Pro edge. At the moment it's Metallic Wine Red with a maple board & black headstock. Within the next week or so I'm going to sand the whole thing down, back to bare wood. I was planning on a BSP finish (Burnt stained Purple), but have since gone off the idea of purple. I'm still going to be staining it, Colour suggestions welcomed. I'll be posting 'before' pics shortly. Cheers.
