Pin striped my new rgt42dx

Picked up a cheap rgt42dx today and decided to pin stripe it like my PGM. Going to put some Nailbomb pups and a Gotoh on this thing and call it a day. So far I LOVE this guitar (not using the trem).

Great Job! I also will be doing a green pinstripe on a black 7 strg. project. Please p.m. on how you did it?

Actually stole the idea from a fellow jemsite'r ; v )

It's simple automotive pin striping you get at Auto Zone (U.S.) I've had it on my PGM for a few years now and it doesn't move at all. Nice thing is it peels off no problem if you ever want to resale / change it up. It's tedious work though.

also forgot to mention, I used 1/4" for the sides and 1/8" for the top.

That looks great! (In fact they both do). Wish my Ibanez had a shiny finish so I could do it to mine! I love that look.

P.S. If it's non-invasive and undo-able I might try it on mine anyway!

Re: Pin striped my new rgt42dx

They also have Red, Blue, Chrome, and Yellow to choose from as well. Just be sure not to pull / stretch the pin striping when applying. When stretched too tight the stripe looses width and is noticeably thinner in the stretched places. It's a fairly tedious process and I also recommend putting the guitar as high as possible (I have a bar table at home) with as much light as you can put on it. This will help your eye find the "lines" easier. Please post pics after!!
