So heather Pearl?

In the catalog, the heather Pearl (HP) , which I thought was "Hot Pink" LOL, looks the same as the Telesavalas. Is that right?

Great color--same as on the '89 RG-550. I hated painting over it for my Space Invaders custom.

Heather Pearl is more metallic, while the Tele is, uhm, "plastic". In the picture you linked to they look the same. This picture shows another side of HP. http://images.craigslist.org/3k83mc3...e779381dd8.jpg

Looks like a Road Flare Red, but the pic is a little washed. Concerning the catalog pic of telesavalas--they may have just changed the color. The 770s were offered in HP, but telesavalas is not an HP. I think they did that color change to show the HP color, as telesavalas had a color not offered.

Cool, I am working on a tribute guitar and don't want to buy anymore paint.

I am going to use Neon Pink on an RG750

Thanks for the info fellas!

P.S. Bat, I took the PN 550ltd to a paint center that scaned the guitar and they are working on a color match. I will let you know what we find. Someone who commented about this color in an earlier thread was pretty close when they said it was probably red base coat with some sort of blue or purple pearl mid-coat.
