My RG7620 swirled yellow/black/greenish


It's done. Not the best swirl or not the best clear coat, but it's done by me =) At least it's better than the ones I've done before so there's some kind of progression.

A paint run under the bridge cavity and som white spots on the edges because of too quick wetsanding =(

Comments?





Headstock. Not cleared yet. Still waiting for the decal.


Without the pickguard


Pic taken with flash, so you can see the fluorescent green.


Best parts of the clear coat are like a mirror

Not bad! I would personally change the pupselector-, vol- and toneknob to Black or yelllow to complete the picture, though :-)

Yeah, I thought about yellow ones too. Just put the red ones I had in there.

Re: My RG7620 swirled yellow/black/greenish


Yeah, the swirl is not bad. I would prefer a plain pickguard to make some contrast. May be black or white.

Re: My RG7620 swirled yellow/black/greenish


or better yet, a see-through pickguard if you are satisfied with the swirl beneath

Grand job, nevertheless, my friend!

Thanks! I kinda like better with that swirled pickguard on it. I've yellow knobs on the way so let's see how it looks like then.

I'm not sure about the headstock, though. It's nice but it could be better. What do you guys think? I'm getting a yellow logo with green swoosh. Maybe it looks good on that, don't know.

Yellow knobs.
The logo got a bit off it's right place but it's there. Still waiting for the tuners and locking nut to come.
