Default Orvis Trout Bum 6'6" 3 wt component question

I am ordering a blank to build a Trout Bum 6'6" 3wt 2 piece rod. I would like to try and build it as close to the original as possible. My questions are : 1) Any idea what the thread color name is that Orvis uses on this rod and 2) What are the sizes of the guides? I have emailed Orvis with this question but have not heard back from them (honestly, not sure if they will give me the information) so any help here is appreciated.
Thanks,
Tuck

Let me get to the garage and I'll look at me trout bum. It's a 7'6 3 wt but the color thread should be the same.
