Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

I just got my RG back from my buddy, who was doing the custom paint work.
He's really done me proud - I hope you enjoy the pics.

Guitar is an Ibanez RG2EX1.

See the rest of the pictures here:

EDIT: I guess the whole picture thing didn't work. I keep getting: "Upload of file failed."
EDIT2: Now it's working...

What about one with the Union Jack on it? That would be awesome...

Re: Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

Great. I love it. Don't be afraid to be patriotic. And that doesn't mean we have to be apologists and naive either.


But about guitars, it is definately a quality paint job for sure.

Re: Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

1. I think the "Smooth Creations" logo f#cks up the whole paint job.

2. A nice white Ibanez logo should've been added to the headstock.

Overall it looks nice.

I asked a friend to do the photography in his studio. He was happy to oblige, as he really enjoyed the "subject". He also did the photoshopping.

The strap buttons are Hennessy stap locks. I love them!

Glad you like the pics! I'm a happy jammer!

Re: Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

yeah i think the smooth creations logo makes it corny. although i wouldnt be that patriotic or even sport the flag on anything, it is a really really good paint job, it looks beautiful. the flag actually looks really nice aesthetically..good propaganda tool too

i mean i dont mind the artist taking credit for his work, but the smooth creations logo couldve been on the back or the headstock right under where the ibanez logo would be, but i think in that spot it ruins it

now just get white hardware, blue and red pickups and pickup rings, powder coat that bridge, lol

Re: Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

I think the artist incorporated the smooth creations logo well. It looks like a band name tag on something. I personally thought the thing was fake at first because of how good the art is.

Re: Stars and Stripes Ibanez - NEW!

Is this a paint job? It looks like it was done in Photoshop. I'd like to see normal pictures.
