    A friend of mine is willing to put a sticker on the body of his guitar. As far as he told me, the sticker is "laminated PVC". Before he do that, I alerted him that any abrasive stuff could damage the finish, or at best leave some goo the day he gets tired and wants to remove it. But regarding...

    Hello guys I recently got my hands on an '87 RG560 in Carotene Orange, but this thing was beat up to a pulp. The guy got some "heavy make up" on the guitar so it would look nice for photos and he sent it with a broken tremolo, a badly repaired neck and some dodgy finish on it. Well, we already...

It looks easy but i don't want to go into this project over confident. my main question is: Should I used matte paint (its gonna be a black guitar BTW)...

    hi guys, I'm trying to find a US based guitar painting/finishing service that offers an old school 80s Charvel/BC Rich crackle. Most pro services do not offer a crackle, either due to EPA restrictions :? or lack of experience. I have one vendor who's willing to do one, but he appears to have...

    I've searched a lot of threads on this board and all over and never found a definitive answer. What is the finish on the back if the Prestige 1570 guitars? I also ask because I have very sweaty (and well, acidic) hands. On my old guitars I sanded the polyester neck finish down and used some...

    Hey guys! I'm putting together a project RG out of parts I have laying around and I decided I want to try doing a natural-type finish. I had a 1-pc solid mahogany body cut and I'm trying to decide the best way to finish it... Stain it? Seal it? Just linseed oil it? Clear it? Leave it open...

    I have an RGT220 HSOL. I don't remember what year it is, but it's the last year they made them, as seen here: http://www.ibanezrules.com/new/rgt220h.htm Anyone know what this finish is? I want to duplicate it on a project I'm working on. It's not glossy at all, and literally feels/smells like...

    Does an RG1570 stripped natural or with a clear finish look very good? Just wondering if I may want to do that to mine some day. Thanks

    Hey guys, as some of you may have seen in the 3120 owners thread, I recently picked up a RGT3120 TV in amazing condition. I am very excited about this guitar, so you can imagine how much it sucked for me last night, when I put my first chip in the finish... I know that guitars get dings and...

    I got a new RG2550Z. The finish leaves me disappointed, considering I bought it on a sale for >$1000. Was I expecting too much? 1. Some of the frets are a little murky/rusty. 2. The white fretboard edges seem a little chipped in some places near frets, and there are a few black scratches...

    Hi everyone, first off hope everyone's doing fine. I just picked up a '94 SR1305 bass (picture below). Its not dinged up too badly so I figured I'd pickl it up and restore it. My question is, what did Ibanez use to finish this guitar, is it Tung Oil? My second question is, since its looking a...

    So, I used MicroMesh to remove some fine scratches in the finish of an S540, now the area that I sanded is very cloudy and looks awful. I used 1500-12000. Ideas on how to fix this?

    Hey guys! I took my Fender Stratocaster American Standard to get a set up with my local luthier. The guitar came with a crack in the finish (i think it's in the finish, im REALLY worried about this i would like your opinion). I think the guy used too much force with the screwdriver, here...

    I bought a beat-up 430s from the classifieds here a month or two ago, and an odd Charvel Model 1 (with a Kahler trem replacement) on eBay at about the same time. Then I set to painting! http://imageshack.us/g/825/img20110507105248.jpg/ My sister used acrylics to do the futuristic city graphic...
