My custom RG 7620 Arctic White

Here are some photos of my RG 7620BK that I bought brand new at
Spectrum Music, Brunswick, ME for $1000.00 in May of 1998.
In 2002, I stripped the black finish and painted Arctic White.
I bought 2 white Blaze II humbuckers that came out of someone's UV7PWH,
then put them in. Custom knobs,etc.. serial# F9756042.

That looks really nice man! It certainly sets it apart from all of the black ones you see around. It doesn't look anything like a UV7PWH either. Real classic look to it.
What's that on the body?

Good job. White headstock on the mofo, and it's perfect. Is that hard to do?

I think it looks better with the black headstock personally.

Re: My custom RG 7620 Arctic White

Very nice! I did something similiar with an Rg7620 a few years back...and MAN, I wish I still had that guitar! I painted the body & headstock ultra white, installed 2 EMG707 pups, filled the 5-way selector switch & installed a 3-way pup switch ala JPM style. SICK!!!!

Looks great, I've got an RG stripped down to bare wood right now and I'm deciding what do do with it. Do you mind giving details on how you finished it? The paint job looks really good!

thanks
