    I’m undecided. Bought an Epi SG junior as a project guitar.

    New neck, P90 dogear, new tailpiece repositioned ‘50s style, reposition controls. Refinish in nitro, but what colour?

    I like the Shell pink, but think it will look better with white PG and dogear. Sorta similar to the Corvette princess

    Olympic for me, Arctic is too cold! Antique White USA is a good option as well.

    Maybe there's a reason for that?

    If you want a Gibby, it needs to be Polaris. :)

    Would be a good option if I could shoot metallic.

    Based on this comparison I’d opt for the cream.
