Japanese RG180 Paint Job Continued...

If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to Ibanez.com, click the country (Japan), click 'Guitars', then click 'RG', and then click 'RG180DX' and you will see what I am talking about. The "shadow" finish... How do I do that!? I want to so badly, someone please give me some ideas!.. (Not doing the "shadow" to the headstock btw, just the body)

It looks like a burst finish, with a narrow outside colour?

I'd guess this tutorial on projectguitar.com would do it..

I guess you'd paint the body white/silver, then follow the tutorial to add the blue/red edge. Maybe..

Kinda reminds me of my RGR...

(These pics were taken the day I got it home, before I unblocked and replaced the bridge, and gave it a good cleaning)
