"Cheese" factor?

Let me first say no offense to anyone who has already done this, and sorry if it's been addressed before.

BUT....

I own an RG model (will hopefully add to the collection as time goes on), and was thinking, "Is it too cheesy to put f-holes (decals or paint) on an RG, ala Paul Gilbert?"

Being a fan of his, and liking the look of the classic "f-holes" on a "modern" styled instrument, the thought has crossed my mind. Not to try to pass off the instrument as a PGM or anything, just to give it a fresh look.

Any thoughts?

I believe RG's were made to be modified or personalized do what ya need to make it yours.

Being a big fan of all things cheesy I've got to admit that I too have been looking at doing this to my old RG550 for a laugh.

I guess you're looking at the same stickers on the 'bay as me

It will look bad because of the knobs placement.

I've sold them to people in the past thru the old PGMSite that have put them on RGs, although the only one I ever saw a pic of was Eddie's from EKG. I thought it looked pretty good, although he did have to deal with the knobs.

Re: "Cheese" factor?

What color are you looking for? I know I still have some black, and should have some white and cream, and possibly a set of chrome, too. I was selling them for $8 mailed on PGMSite last year, but I'd have to charge $10 for the chromy - if I have it. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

Re: "Cheese" factor?

Thanks. This is just an idea I'm throwing around (not too seriously though). I will give you a shout if I choose to go that way...

Re: "Cheese" factor?

I always thought someone should do monkey grip and lions claw stickers for RG's.
