Need suggestions for RD 727 paint

I jsut bought a 1987 RD 727 bass, i`ve been drooling for one of these since i saw Greg Christian in the 1989 Ibanez catalog. I always loved, and will always do, the Rg body shape and this bass is just that but on a long scale. I love the headstock on this thing!!!!!!!!!!



I got for a couple hundred bucks but the body was in bad shape, so it`s all stripped down and ready for paint. I was thinking getting this painted in Road Flare Red or Carotene Orange.

What would you guys do to it?



Thanks,

Chris

road flare red is my opinion Such a sweet color!

You're gonna leave the head stock black??

Swirl it... Joke, Desert Yellow would be the best Idea in my Opinion.

I would say carotene orange, but I love the color orange. Also how about LNG. Looks like a good bass.

Yeah i`m leaning with this color scheme too, the neadstock is in good condition so i was thinking of keeping it black, but for sure a matching headstock would kill huh?

Headstock is staying black, but don`t tempt me too much, i might change my mind.

Yeah i posted that one, i thought about it but i`d need sample to get it scanned to have it right, i don`t want to go ballpark on this.

But it would look killer for sure.
