I've emailed Kevan a while ago about the RG-PAINT that a music store had for sale, but i want to ask this for the whole forum, in case someone has more info about it.
I live in Portugal and it seems that this small country is a "paradise" for J-Customs! In less that 2 years i've seen 4 J-Customs for sale! One RG-METAL (that i didn't bought because i couldn't decide between the METAL and a 7VWH. i know i was stupid and i still regret the day it was sold to another guy...), and three RG-PAINT's.
There's a music store near me that has right now an RG-PAINT for sale (they had another one that was sold, and there was another store in another city that also had another PAINT that was sold). This RG-PAINT is something unique (like the other two). I can't remember if this one is an RG-PAINT1 or 2... But i'll try to describe it (i don't have pics...).
These PAINT's are kind of Multi Colors Swirls. While the MC's seems like they were painted, the PAINT's seems like they were sprayed. They have very bright colors with very wide color streams. The PAINT that was gone from the same music store that has this one was a mixture of pink, white and blue (if i remember correctly). The one that is currently for sale is yellow, blue and red. It has, like i said, very bright colors and very wide color streams (don't think micro swirls in here!). It's very sweet. The pickups are blue and it doesn't have a pickguard. It has the H-S-H configuration but the guy in the store doesn't know anything about the pickups (i guess the are Tone Zone and Air Norton for the hambuckers). It has a rosewood fingerboard, with just dots in th 12 and 24 position. The headstock also matches the paint in the body. Very cool! Ah, it has also a signature in the back, that i assume it was from the luthier or from the guy who checked it out and the J-Custom case. As for the price, it lists for $2000, but the guy can sell it to me for $1350 (that's a great deal or not?!?!?)
I find these PAINT's very sweet. Not being Multi Color guitars, they are different and unique too that remind me of MC's because of the multi colors used
. I've never seen a paint like these in any other guitar, and as far as quality of construction, like Kevan said, i don't think they get any better than these.
Does anyone has more info about these?
