I think the right choice is to do a solid color finish for the guitar. Why? Well, because there is something oldish or should I say classiquish (new word, I like it) about Tele's and they seem to look best dressed up.
That being said; I don't know what color should I paint it. I'm leaning gold or dark blue, or maybe seafoam green. But, as per usual, can't seem to commit to something.
What say ye?
