Refinished RG570 pics

I was inquiring about refinish my 1991 RG570 guitar in Desert Yellow about a month back, so found an enamel called Sun Yellow. Here are the finished pics. Also, I put Steve Via EVO's in the bridsge and Neck. These are the finished pics and the last is the original color from 1991.

Re: Refinished RG570 pics

Thanks.

Actually, I'm just an amateur, but wanted to concentrate on a nice finish this time. I bought a Rustoleum Brand Sun Yellow, and used Lacquer clear coat. The trick is I used the clear coat 101 tutorial thread on this site:

But, I didn't go to the extreme that this guy describes.

Re: Refinished RG570 pics

Nice, I am going for yellow on the guitar that I am building now (albeit very slowly). Why is yellow so neglected?

Sweet! I always thought an RG with sharktooth inlays would look pretty nice in DSY.

Great job!

Re: Refinished RG570 pics

Did you use spray cans or a air compressed sprayer? I'm getting ready to do a 570 myself.

Are you sure thats not a RG770?

Here's a shot from the 1991 catalog.

Re: Refinished RG570 pics

Yes, sorry to say I used spray cans. KRYLON RUST TOUGH ENAMEL (RTA 9211 Sun Yellow) and DEFT brand Gloss clear Lacquer. Wet or Dry paper (600,800,1000,1500,2000). That's it - But, I like the results.

GEX, it's definitely a RG570. Posted on the back of the neck. However, the year from the serial number is a 1992. I just always called it a 91 since I bought it in late 1991.

Re: Refinished RG570 pics

I have to original black dome knobs, but I like the JEM/Numbered knobs better.

I Also just realized I may be dating this guitar wrong. I never can quite remember the year I bought this, thought the serial number F920681 meant it was a '92, but from reading other's numbers, this may be a 1989? My stock pickups didn't have the V7/V8 logos on it.

I'd like to do a JEM project one day, other than the aesthics of the JEM (Monkey grip, claw cavity, vines, etc...) With the Evolution Pickups in my RG570 now, what's the other real differences? I think Steve Vai even put this older Edge trem in his #1 EVO.
