I seem to recall Vinnie could shoot polyester.

Vinnie is trying to step away from any paint work that is not part of a Custom VMG Guitar.........
It's not really hoarding if your shit is cool....

Since we have a topic for this: do any of you know which colour the champagne finish was based on? I have been looking for something to reproduce this, but unlike most other guitar finishes, the name does not correspond to any car paint.
No longer looking for a late-era Baretta I body (with double scooped lower horn).

Probably based on gold.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Yep, looks like champagne metallic car paint above. Metal flakes in the finish and probably gold or silver base layer, but I think any serious painter should be able to tell you the right mixture.

It's a fairly well known color, also used for cars etc. Just ask a pro, he'll probably offer you several versions to choose from.
