Re: RG-Metal finish - how to do?
both the HAM and the RG-metal were sandblasted using a template.
I have a HAM and looking by the resin in the cavity, the entire body was sprayed in resin prior to sandblasting, I don't think it would've been cheaper than using filler on a regular finished guitar per se.
There is a bit of a difference between the HAM and metal, though. The HAM finish is much rougher, perhaps they sandblasted longer on the RG-metal, it could also be a difference in paint.
The paint on the sides of the HAM also rough, but in a different way: it's bumpy.
