Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

I would not want it because it's too bland for my tastes but I don't think it looks bad in any way.

mod a current guitar.

And I agree it is bland, but I don't know how else to spice it up.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

I would prefer white pickups/knobs/etc, but that looks cool too. Probably about as understated as any guitar with purple on it could possibly be.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

not a big fan. Id say a black rg is not the ideal place to start when trying to make a "spiced up" guitar. Maybe try experimenting with different pickguard colors too.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

Since I've got nothing to do right now, I'll see if I can come up with something "better". Do you still want some pink stuff on your guitar?? Are you gonna do just small modifications, or big ones?? What guitar is it?, I mean what model?

Great!

Yeah pink is great. No huge huge mods. Like no painting. It's just a black rg550.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

Well I couldn't come up with something really beautiful that requires minor mods look at this:



Came up with this one too, but there's nothing pink on it:



Finally came up with this one, but it requires some major modifications (painting and neck binding):



Just tried to help u a bit

Stick to the tried and tested black and white scheme

IMO guitars like this need black everything with a garish body. Like so :

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

To take the guess-work out of the black/white combination, here's what my black RG looked like:



If you want to "spice" it up, get a white pearloid pickguard and experiment with black or white pickups to see what works for you.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

I think I'd rather go black on black than black on white, honestly.

Re: Opinions on my RG mockup?

The "problem" is you want pink, but your guitar has originally no pink, so putting pink pickups or knobs wouldn't be a good colour-matching decision. IMO, you should just mess with the colours your guitar currently has (black, white, creme), unless you're planning to do some painting. I personally prefer the black/creme combination I posted before instead of the classic black/white one.

Came up with one more design (notice I used creme instead of white, cause the fretboard is creme ):
