'89 RG560 build

Got this body for short money not too long ago:



The body is an '89 560

Whoever painted it had no idea what he was doing, wasted a good color

So after stripping all the paint, and tediously sanding off all the epoxy primer...

Re: '89 RG560 build

Paint ordered today, gonna have some fun with this one

as far as i know there never was a desert yellow 560, so this should be something unique, even if it is a little bit of a frankenstein. At least all the parts are from '89.

whoever painted it must have been on crack, it was a mess. They didn't even take the pickups out!!! Thankfully the thick paint and epoxy primer saved the body from getting any dings.

Re: '89 RG560 build

where did you find that color swatch.... you could take the headstock to an automotive paint place and they could find you a match.... if you are unhappy with the current selection.

good luck and keep the pics coming i like these kinds of threads!

Re: '89 RG560 build

You just kinda had an RG550 neck laying around? Odd

But I can't wait to see the end product of this!

Re: '89 RG560 build

its going a little slow, but here we are so far...



the whole thing will brighten up a lot too once the fluorescent top coat goes on.

keep in mind too i'm going for more of an "aged" desert yellow to match the headstock.
