Touch up paint

Anybody got a color match for my Cherry Fudge 7421? I know some peeps use fingernail polish...that's fine too.

Any info = much appreciation

Thanks,
TH

OK, guess not...does anybody have any suggestions other than going to an auto painter to get the paint matched?

Thanks,
TH

it'll take more than one day to get a good response- breathe.

my suggestion is to go into your local CVS with your guitar, walk up to the cutest girl working there, and say, "excuse me, I was wondering if you could help me..." and hope you leave with the right color and a phone number.

Wal-Mart sells auto touch up paint, and if you're lucky, there might be a cute girl working there, too!

Actually....I was hoping that Ibanez, in it's infinite wisdom *cough* might have published paint specs somewhere. I'm sure that's a bit too much to hope for...

Good idea, chicks dig guitarists (I could make a strong fingers joke here, but I won't)

don't waste your time, we've got nothing on rock climbers.

...good thing I took a climbing class at school though, eh?

Well, I play both guitar and bass, so my finger's are plenty strong (or, so I've heard)

oh god, this one's going downhill...

I'm a hack bassist, but I physically play the thing...

and yeah, I've heard that once you go guitarist, you never go back, as well.

Ok, minds out of the gutter, folks.

yeah, a good ear is horribly underrated.

Speed helps, but for me (on both ends) it's more about rhythm.

Anyway, the one downside of being a guitarist is the callouses. good thing for hot tubs

10-60? Trust me, I'm a wuss compared to some people around here.

I just like heavy picks and tend to dig in a bit... much lighter than that in the bass and low notes would wobble all over the place when I was playing rhythm.

Course, a tremsetter'd probably help a bit...

10-60 is what I use too right now, and it's not heavy enough
