My RFR has a pink headstock...

So i always thought it was just fading. but I removed the truss rod cover, and its VERY VERY pink. theres about an inch of dust around the truss rod cover, and its very evident from the screw corrosion it hasnt been removed in years. I took two pictures and combined them, they are same light, same camera, same backing to capture the color as best as I could. It looks like they had some SK paint left over :P

Odd, but not surprising........ were finding more and more oddities all the time with the older RG's, aren't we.

I wonder if they put an LR neck on there by mistake......it does look like LR

pics dont capture it very well. the body is most certainly RFR. The head stock is VERY pink. Like bright bright pink.



closest ive seen elsewhere...

yeah dude, I always thought it was the RFR being funky and fading oddly. But the truss rod cover pretty much shows that its VERY pink... Looks SK, no?

looks SK to me. Perhaps it was in the JEM line when they sprayed it, then just left it like that after assembly.

Yeah, it looks just like my SK headstock. Although it doesn't surprise me, I'm pretty sure every company cuts corners like that.

They might do a SK base coat with some red candy color over it. That would also explain why it always looks different colors all the time.

That headstock color looks pretty close to my Coral Mist 550, wonder if you got a RFR body and CM headstock?
