Actually, I was going to have it refinished in Candy Apple Red with a black back (keeping the maple binding) but did a test fit with the new hybrid hardware and Core plastics. The Gold Top looked much more subdued and less like a junkies urine sample. So, gold it stayed.
Besides, I already did that on a PRS.
I also got my Music Man JP15 refinished in Rose Gold Sparkle.
And it was soooo goooood.
