Need help deciding on a color for guitar I'm building

I'm cannabalizing my S-series guitar for the neck and building a new body to address some issues I have with the S-series.

I'm making a smaller yet thicker body that's based on my Jackson Dinky. It's basically about 1 to 1/2 inch smaller in the outside dimension.

I'm installing a real floyd rose (Black)

I'm installing my two seymour duncans (JB/Jazz)

I'm routing the neck joint with the correct angle so I don't have to shim it.

Basically it's going to be a mini jackson looking guitar with two humbuckers and an OFR made from an amazingly nice piece of African mahogany.

My question is this...

Should I tung oil the body and buff it and leave it as is?

Should I paint it lime green?

Should I paint it black?

Any other color you all think would look good?
