    Default Kramer Barreta red or Ivory

    Ok. After much pondering I've decided to return my 5150ish, banana head guitar to a more traditional look. I bought a Duplicolor red metallic that is about as close to the old Kramer issue you can get. It's a base/clear system, but since seeing the yet to be released in our lifetime Wolfgang's ivory finish, I'm thinking it might be the way to go. It just has that classic look. So I'm putting you guys to task to give me your opinions on a cool color selection. If I do go ivory, I'm thinking of doing it in a nitro. I could go solid ivory, but in history, I've done quite a few guitars with a black back, binding and a different color or stain on the top. Give me your suggestions for what you think is a good color nowadays. The body is very close in shape to the 5150, but has a slightly shorter bottom bout, and I did cut some some angled reliefs into the horns for more comfortable upper fret access. I'll post pics of the progress, as I'm begining the tear down and rough sand tonight.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    Fender Banana pudding would be a great nitro. It's really called Olympic White, but it looks like banana pudding.

    Guitar Reranch has that colour.
    Dammit!!! I still smell like cotton candy!!!

    That's the color I'm refering to. Not a white, but one that has that cream kinda look. Now do you think, black, with bound ,and olympic white, or solid?

    Most of the old Baretta's I've seen were an off whiteish color.
