To refinish or not

I have a 2002 rg 570 that I had originally bought to refinish but now I am having second thoughts. The finish is in ok shape with just a small chip and a few small dings. It is a metallic almost yellowed pewter color that reminds me of a beige Camry and it isn't my favorite but I have no idea if this color is desirable to others and that is keeping me from pulling the trigger. I wouldn't have an issue with stripping it if it is really common and not desirable, but if it is not a common color I would feel wrong doing it.

I do have a spare body that has obviously been refinished and in much worse shape that I could do and swap parts but I like to keep the parts together if I can and the other body doesn't have tremolo studs.
