my rg550 modification

hi, just wanted to show my modification of my recently purchased '89 rg550 (with rosewood fretboard).

I dont have a digital camera, only a webcam, so the quality of the pics is quite crappy.

what i have done is that i have put selfadhesive bookcover-plastic on the pickguard and on the headstock logo. and it turned out quite well imo.

thank u.

i printed the logo (with my computer-printer) on the back of the self-adhesive book cover and then used a scalpel to cut it out. it was quite meticulous and somewhat tricky.

It looks like the decorations from my high school prom! And yes, I thought they were cool, too! How long did it actually take you to cut the logo?

im not sure really how long it took, around 30 minutes maybe. i also did another one, but i changed my mind about the color, so i had to redo it. =)
