You know, that's a really nice looking piece of rosewood for that fretboard. I love rosewood boards like that. Nice job!

Re: got new 7 and starting to mod

the guitar had lots of cracking, ding and chippings, thats why i opted for repainting it, i always have wanted a non glossy guitar, just to feel it different from the guitars i own(that are glossy).

Re: got new 7 and starting to mod

Nice, but kinda ironic. Painting a guitar black that was originally black. If you wanted satin, couldn't you just spray the satin clear coat over the guitar? Or use the glass-frosting gel stuff?

Here it is finished.


By the way nevermind the orange knob (emg guitar expander) ill be changin it, thats because i didnt found one black that i had somewhere. it will be black, or black with white numbrers or something cool i find.

Ill be using .010-.-58 strings on this monster, i already tested and sounds really killer. the low b just got balls and punch, lots of punch( and that just tested on a home stereo, and small 8" speaker behringer practice amp) cant wait to go to the rehearsal, to play it thru my amp!

well hope you enjoy this kinda of picture history.

Re: got new 7 and starting to mod

Yeah,i also think it'll look nicer with a gloss lacquer on it.

I think the colour scheme just won't 'come alive' with a satin clear-coat.

Nice work so far though!

Re: got new 7 and starting to mod

That looks awsome! I want to do that to my RG7321, but with white.

It looks good with the EMGs in there. Not so sure about the finish, maybe with the clear, it'll look hot. Nice job.

More pics








im using this polyurethane protective clear finish, satin.
what do you think about this?
i already gave it the first coat, then ill give it a little sand with a 400 sand paper, then another coat, until i got some several coats.
