Touch up paint for rg550

Hey everyone,
Just picked up a 1991 rg550 lazer blue - looks great other than a small chip on the back of the guitar. I am wondering what type of paint do you use for small touch up jobs like these that make it look as close as possible to the real finish. Thanks.

Re: Touch up paint for rg550

seriously though Tannen: there are no touch up paints for Ibanez....especially the older ones. I have been looking for a paint match for Laser blue for 18 years and never found it. Your best bet is to take it to a VERY good body shop for a paint match......

Re: Touch up paint for rg550

Honda's Celestial Blue Pearl is pretty close to an unyellowed Lazer Blue. My RG565LB is pretty yellowed, and the closest I could get was GM Bright Aqua Met..

Before:

After(sorry about the cell pic):


Take $20 to the auto parts store, buy a couple touch-up pens in colors close to your guitar, and test them on a sheet of paper or in the trem cavity. Never going to be 100%, but it can work alright.
