Toronado Refinish: Need Advise

Post by greyman » Wed Sep 26, 2007 7:34 am

I am doing my first refin!  It's on a 2001 Fender Toronado.  Originally it was black with a tort pick guard.  I got all the poly paint stripped off and now its sitting dormant.  There is a lot of chrome on this guitar. I am wondering what color you all would suggest.  I am thinking sonic blue with matching headstock. 
I need to keep the same pick guard as they are pretty rare and i don't want to take the extra cost to get a new one.

CHROME FINISH!
Times change.  Remember when dog Jimmy used to go white and chalky?  Now it grows hair!  We got used to it. We'll get used to poly. -blueavenger
