won my auction, now i need to ask about tv yellow


Recommended Posts

i have always loved the tv yellow finish, my granddad had a tv yellow lp junior, i loved that thing, he had to sell it for my grandmas medical bills about 4 years ago, when i originally put together my spare parts strat, i had considered it then, but the black finish on the body was perfect, so why go and spoil that, now i have a unfinished body and neck on the way and it would be the perfect oppurtunity to finish it in tv yellow, i think ill get the best of both worlds here, its a hardtail body, wich is not a tune o matic stop bar, but a tele style bridge, still better sustainer, i dont play anything except rythm anyways, no need for a trem, but i think with the headstock, the hardtail bridge, and humbuckers, rear routing, etc. nice blend of a gibson and fender style solid body, i think tv yellow would be the perfect finish, hell i might even entertain the idea of filling the bridge holes and going with the single wraparound, i dunno many ideas, ok tv yellow would make me happy, i have read that tutorial it dont look too hard, anyone done a tv yellow finish yet, any concerns or suggestions, i think ill take as much time as i need to no big rush, this will be a slow process, ill have to be paitent, i waited 2 years for my strat as i slowly waited to get the exact items i wanted, this is like the best xmas gift i could find, i always wanted a fender/gibson, but most kits are either fender or gibson, not a combo so this was a blessing, ok im going to shut up now, im too excited, its my first what i consider a real custom project, ok so i didnt cut the wood on my own, im still happy as i think ill have something rare, not too many people i think will have something like this, i just want to thank everyone for understanding, ahhh tv yellow, its going to look great, unless i go with a natural wood grain look, i always liked that too, hmm well either tv yellow or a clear gloss, ideals, suggestions are appreciated, this is my inspiration btw, this fender and this gibson, i get the best of both worlds hehehehe, its great, sorry im too happy bout this.... this is what im drawing ideals from http://www.fender.com/gear/gear.php?partno=0110600# wich is a color they call butterscotch blonde but is a very tv yellowish looking color, damn close and http://www.gibson.com/products/gibson/lesp.../JrSpecial.html but my granddads was a 94 i think and it was tv yellow, not natural since they dont offer em in tv anymore, basically my first thought was hmm the tornado is alot like the junior, now i get both im happy. I think the fender tornados kick ass by the way, i messed with a few of them at the music shop when they first came out.

See the ABOVE post!!!! In Germany, ReRanch stuff is flamable and won't be air shipped, only ground even in the USA. I'm sure that if you get a sample of the color to an automotive paint shop they can mix some for you over there. And this is a 2002 thread, gosh!
