We May Have a Winner!

I think I might know the color that I want to paint my guitar: Duplicolor Metal Specks Retro Red. I thought it looked pretty good on the Duplicolor site. Then I found this Reranch thread that contained a picture of a Superstrat painted that color (I copied it to my Picasa page so that it doesn't get lost in the ether of time):

VERY cool indeed. I've heard that the Metal Specks paint is a little harder to work with, but it definitely seems worth a shot. Now imagine my Tele in that color with black hardware and the binding.
