JPM paint jobs

Hey guys
I need some opnion from some of you guys cause im having some trouble choosing a custom JPM style paint job for my new RG1570. I need your opinion on what you think looks best, not what stands out more. keep in mind that my RG will have a monkey grip, lions claw and a H-S-H config.
im tossing up between:

1. Ibanez JPM with white basecoat and black picasso graphics.
2. Ibanez JPM with black basecoat and green, yellow red and blue picasso graphics.
3. Mirra-chrome (chrome illusion paint, looks 99% of real chrome) with matt black picasso graphics.

Here are the pics for comparison. click on the pic to enlarge.

Re: JPM paint jobs

mirra-chrome sounds a little to gangsta for me lol (no. i'm not racist) but it sure looks cool. i like black/white the best, as its not overdone.

I would go with:
2. Ibanez JPM with black basecoat and green, yellow red and blue picasso graphics.


I like the original the best. Just like the one on "Rock Discipline".

Hey guys
Look at the poll! Chrome and white-black are even AARRRGGG! How am i going to choose?
CMON guys i need some more polls and opnions
Any polls and opinions are greatly appreciated

vette6600 yeah i was worried the mirra chrome would be a bit overdone or that you wouldnt be able to see the graphics if there is too much refection. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the help fellow ibanez fanatics!

Re: JPM paint jobs

but think of the maintenance needed if you choose mirra chrome dude. dirt, scratches would be clearly visible and unless you are certain that you would always clean your guitar, then chrome it is. if not, the black and white then.

Re: JPM paint jobs

Yeah i suppose it would get dirty. But i wipe my guitar down EVERY time i use is so it should be okay. But incase you didnt know this is a special aluminium filled chrome illusion paint. So therefore it will be finished with a thick clearcoat so there wont be any horrible wearing, scuffing, errosion and oxidising normally associated with the JS10s and other nickel-plated guitars. Also the picasso grapic takes up a fair bit of space on the front so i could deal with it . You should see my Ibanez RG520QS in trans blue. It is ABSOLUTLY covered with scratces!
Yeah the white is my favorite
BTW could you please place a vote in the poll so i can keep track of what you guys think.

Re: JPM paint jobs

I've seen an RG on evilbay with the type of mirror finish w/ graphics like you said. It looked killer, but the seller was demanding a high price for it.
