Refinishing RG1421?

Hey guys,

The finish on my RG1421 is pretty dull and unappealing, so I'm considering refinishing it to make the flamed maple pop and to give it a faux binding.

Do you guys think this is a good move? Also, I believe that the headstock inlays are abalone. By refinishing it will I ruin the inlays?

Re: Refinishing RG1421?

I think it sounds like a great idea! I'm guessing that refinishing would ruin the abalone, stripping the laquer and paint from the headstock would probably take the logo&abalone right with it. It's probably not very deep, the abalone. It's not like an I lay where it goes through the wood a couple millimeters. Good luck!
