Sorry d00d, not a fan of the finish, I get a feel of a grey BG with black paint then smudged on.

The monkey grip is wrong.
The inside edge is supposed to "follow" the line of the pickguard and the neck side finish slightly before the top of the pickguard, yours is way wrong and, mainly because of the former point, I think looks well out of place.


Didn't RG7621's have fixed bridges??!

It's not textured...and yes, i meant 7620

i picked it up off of ebay for $650.. it came with the finish and all, i think it was a steal.

Yeah, very perty. I am liking the finish actually, I didnt think I would. But it has grown on me the 2nd time I saw the pics. It does appear to be textured however, even though it isnt - but I like that. Congrats!

So is the grip on Vai's UV prototype. It's too far toward's the rear. If he's happy with it - so be it.

I really dig that finish.
