Re: Hmmm, RG7620 to Universe, but which direction?


BTW, didn't mean to sound like a sarcastic a$$ in the above post, I guess it did come across that way. I meant to be a little sarcastic, but in a poking fun way, please don't take it seriously....

Woah....i simply gave my honest opinion. I've always believe in the saying "diversity makes the world go round" and I actually need others to like things I don't, and do things I don't agree with, to appreciate the things I prefer. Good luck with your custom.

That's why I added this post "BTW, didn't mean to sound like a sarcastic a$$ in the above post, I guess it did come across that way. I meant to be a little sarcastic, but in a poking fun way, please don't take it seriously...." but since it went to the other page, probably got missed (at least I'm very guilty of that!).

So, point is, meant my post in good fun, no hard feelings, just poking.... I appreciate your taste in over the top custom guitars, no worries.

In the process, shot some clear on it last weekend, need to sand it smooth and shoot the final clear coats and buff it out, hopefully will get the clear done over the long weekend.

Have a great T-day!

No monkey grip. Without it, all of those options become awesome!

Re: Hmmm, RG7620 to Universe, but which direction?


Already has da grip...

So, this is one of my first tries at painting with "real" automotive clear poly. I didn't build up quite enough clear before I started wet sanding, so there are a few sand throughs to primer, oh well, I don't have much in the body/paint, so I'm either going to finish it with the marks, they really don't stand out in a swirl, or do a "relic" swirl which might be cool. No way to touch up a swirl...

Next project, I will pick the colors and will know better what I'm doing for the clear coat, already have the colors picked out, just going to wait until spring.

Re: Hmmm, RG7620 to Universe, but which direction?


Here's how it came out... There were some marks in the finish so I just distressed it (DMC?), it actually came out pretty cool. But, the best part is that is plays and sounds killer, better than the original body for some reason, wood karma?

Looks great! You should get the board torn out and replace it with a flamed maple board + coloured DNA or pyramid inlay too!

Thanks! Yeah, I love maple, but no $ right now. This was supposed to be a cheap/quick project.

Re: Hmmm, RG7620 to Universe, but which direction?


I'll pass on stickers, I'm good with the pearl dots, too much yellow is, well, too much... ;-) Mostly just wanted to add some color to the all black 7620, so, I'm fine with keeping it as toned down as a swirl can be ;-)
