Purple RGs--a Family Portrait.

I finally got the 570 twin all fixeded up and ready to dance. I just had to get a family portrait of my three purple RGs! I've got some green Evolutions on order for the twin. The purple Iceman and purple/green Space Invaders 550 are still in work...

Nice! Those cutaways on the 570 bug me though. Ever think about painting or staining them?

They bugged me at first, too--I've been thinking of painting them green. I got this baby really cheap because of those cutouts.

Yep, they look real. And, as I've posted in the reviews section, you can't feel them when playing.

Glad to hear that! I'm definitely getting a few sets for my guitars. Very cool.

Sounds interesting! May I ask what they are or would you rather keep details to yourself until they are done?

Well, as I've already posted that info in other threads, here it is again: The RG-550 Space Invaders guitar that I've refinished in a purple/green color-shift paint and an Iceman IC-300 that I've shot in purple chrome. Go through the TECH forum, and look for my Space Invaders RG-550 build thread for details.
Here's a shot of the Iceman headstock:

Those all look very inspiring! I like the cutaways contrary to most folks and of course the RG770VM is always cherry...Can't wait to see everything else finished up!
