The tragic loss of an RG Paint

I've been in a mad search for one of these for the past 6 years. Ever since I played Kevans at when our band played at Jemfest. I found this one for sale, and the pic on the website said "damaged" . I was hoping it was a nick, or somthing on the back or at the worst, something repairable. I wasn't prepared for the pics he sent. I about cried. Paints are not for everyone. And like works of art, or other rare Customs, are in the eye of the beholder. I played German Schauss's http://www.germanschauss.com/ Art at one Jemfest. Cool story. We wer playing, and I broke a string mid song. He was in the front row with his Art warming up for his set. He jumps up and hands me his Art and I do a quick cord change and keep going with out stopping the song. He's a great guy. And a maniac shredder.
Anyhow, I'm still looking. If you run across one, please remember me.



Here's the picks that will break your heart. And by the way, if you are a Paint owner, your guitar just became more valuable.

I love RGPaints, the one on the front is the only one that'd bother me tbh.

Re: The tragic loss of an RG Paint

What are you talking about? The guitar has some blemishes but to say that the guitar is lost???????? Beyond repair???????????????????

You can fix those dings and chips. If you have them professionaly repaired you would hardly be able to tell from 2 or 3 feet away.

Some of you guys are way to anal about the condition of the guitars. This are not particularly expensive guitars so they are probably played and even giged. For the right price I ll take it. I dont know how much they usually go for, lets say 1800 for a mint one? For 1000 I ll defintably buy this one and have it repaired.

Re: The tragic loss of an RG Paint

"Tragic loss"!!!?!?? What the hell are you on man!?!?!?! More like "the tragic few chips to an RG Paint". OMG, I give a rat's ass. Yeah, there are chips. It's not like it's 'lost' ffs. I thought the neck had snapped or something, or it had been butchered.

I see a couple of dings, you made it sound like the ax was pulled out of a fire or something.

Re: The tragic loss of an RG Paint

AM I missing something here? I honestly wouldn't look twice at the guitar... I would think "oh, someone did a bad paint job on an RG", then move on...

Are these rare? I guess they are. To me it looks like snot and poo.

It's got 11 of 29 written on it so I'd say it's rare. But yeah, it looks like the contents of a baby's nappy (aka diaper) was spilled over it.
