Ok - well I have been working on this for about a week and a half. I got sick of my neon green RG7 and decided to paint it blue and make it look classy.
So well I got some paint and tons of advice from guys on here and SS.org. Sanding was a bitch - good thing I dont have pics of that as its uber messy.
Anyway what I do have are pics of the body and headstock of my custom painted rg7 as they are drying. I have now put on 4-5 coats of ultra glossy clear. I have let the clear dry overnight to get it solid. What follows is a wet sanding with 1500 and 2000 grit.
Here are the pics - enjoy. Btw when this guitar is complete I will put up more pics!!
Love that blue and white contrast!!
Tried to capture the metallic flakes - but I guess it didnt work with the shoddy light bulb we have in our garage.
Piece de resistance! The body - love how that blue and white binding jumps out at ya!!
Frontal nude shot!
Hm.... faux binding.
I love asses - here is my UV/JEM/K7 Jack input mod. You cant even tell where the original RG7 jack hole was! Wood putty is awesome.
Super shiny Dimarzio New 7s for the win!!
Thats all for now - enjoy
