    I love that wine colored one at the top. And I just bought a bass exactly like that one. The shoreline gold was a big part of why I wanted it.

    I agree that wine color is stunning.

    Oxblood like the TVL Jazzmaster.
    Might be difficult to find the paint in that color. Might need to mix paints.

    I don't care for solid color guitars (well, I DO like shoreline gold on a Tele), so, I got no dog in this fight...

    You can paint it in any colour you like so long as it is Foam Green.:)

    (That was almost a Henry Ford quote)

    Love this, the shadowing effect makes it. But that is art, airbrush and talent. I don't have any of those things....

    I really like this suggestion. Mostly because those are two shades of blue that aren't very common. Guitar people would probably know what it is, but it would just be "blue" to everyone else.

    OP, you could always go with something that isn't traditionally a guitar color, like solid brown.

    I don’t think so... about halfway down the page of that link is a list of auto paint analogues, so you could *probably* order a can of car touch up paint of this color...

    Looks like Ford used this color on a 1985 Thunderbird. Easily available even in a base/clearcoat paint. Hmmmm...but that Maui Blue.....
