It's not a one-off, but it is certainly rare.

The model you own is the J-Custom RG-SS-1 (or 2, or 3, or 4). *I'll have to get the model listing with matching pics to be sure. *If you ever remove the neck from the body, the model name/number will be in the heel pocket.
The SS stands for "swimsuit".

Cool guitar! *Thanks for sharing!

(Can I use those pics on J-Custom.com?)

Yeah, they probably made a bijillion of them so you probably don't want to keep it. Tell ya what...I'm willing to help out a fellow jemster and buy it from you. No need to thank me, I need a project guitar to stone fleck anyway (joking).
Cool guitar, I love the graphics on both sides!
If you ever want to sell it.....keep me in mind.
Great find!

It's been hanging on the wall of a little guitar shop for sometime. When I saw 'that puppy' I immediately offered the assistant a donation & the promise of looking after her!

it's loud, but we love it anyway and at least it will be easy to decide on what to wear during gigs, nothing south of an hawaiian shirt goes

have you found a matching guitar strap yet?

Note that AANJ is where the cleavage is. *You must be playing the high frets all the time. *:biggrin:

It's actually a very cool guitar (I checked out the full view here, hope you don't mind me snooping around your ftp). *Great find!

Kev, we need pics for the other 3 sisters of her, hehehe.

Pauly's RG-SS is different than any of the 6 shown in the pic I put up.
Looks like there are at least SEVEN SwimSuit models!

Great picture Kevan, but where's mine? **sob*

There's no doubt it's a Japanese Custom, if it were American I'm sure those bazookas would have been larger! *; )

All we need now is to have a nice bar by the beach and we can hang all seven of them on the wall :biggrin:

Cheesy but real fun...
