Turning a blue 760 body into a BSB

I'll keep you posted.

Hehe. Those finishes don't come off easily, do they. I've done 2 RG bodies. Hard work!

I'm using a torch. The topcoat is no problem, but that basecoat is TOUGH. It crossed my mind to just leave the burned silver. It could be the new industrial look, but that's so 90's.

Yeah, I used a Bosch paint stripping gun to burn it off. The base coat sure is EVIL!

Re: Turning a blue 760 body into a BSB

you can see the pink there too. I was experimenting, but I don't think I have the experience or tools to do a smooth sprayed finish

That's why I left mine raw. I guess I should tung oil it or something, at least. Whatever though, my Ibanez is too old, I don't care for it much these days (buying a new guitar soon). Good luck man!

what is it? I might buy it from you. Is it a 550 or 750?

Re: Turning a blue 760 body into a BSB

The guitar is currently a frankenstein -- 1988 RG550 body, 1990 RG750 neck, Jem 777VBK electronics/pickups (green). I'm not sure if I'd ever sell it, it has a lot of sentimental value.

Re: Turning a blue 760 body into a BSB



here's an update. I did a nice freehand route job. It will look fine under the pickguard. I just hope that middle single coil hole lines up with a regular 550 pickguard.

Do it! SK is ****ing awesome! Hey I used a torch the first time I stripped and Ibanez, top coats pops off nice and the basecoat wasn't much worse.

Re: Turning a blue 760 body into a BSB
