Hey!

One of my freaking sound dispersion panels fell off my wall and put a nice nick in my otherwise mint RG7620VK. Does anyone know where I can get some matching color to touch it up with?

Thanks!

either that or if you feel embarrassed , which you shouldn't, you could take a picture of the area enough to get the ding and enough to get the solid color .but i would take the guitar in.If you don't feel like that , any paint store i'm talking about a sears, or home depot or lowes should be able to dube any paint combination you desire , but having an on hand picture wouldn't hurt

Do a search, someone on this forum found the exact shade, and recommended a brand.

Personally, I've yet to see a touchup job that doesn't look worse than the original ding, however - guitars are meant to be played, what's wrong with leaving that?

Agreed. Dings give character. You can never fully apprectiate a guitar until you've dinged it once. If you havn't dinged at least once, then your still being too careful and aren't really playing the guitar to it's full potential.

As SSV says, "the dings and dents tell stories and add character". I have to agree. Guitars are meant to be played. However, I suppose I would be pissed if there was a massive guage in my guitar. But little dings and dents are cool.

Eh. Taking a picture will never work unless you're a top notch photographer with very good equipment.
Yeah, I'd recommend calling around some paintshops, some have a machine that can identify a colour tone. (Chromatograph?)

Im looking around jemsite but I can't find the thread! Do you happen to have a link?

Oh. I agree - but I want my dings to come from battle scars and playing hard, not plastic panels falling off my wall:)

THanks,

Agreed. I knew someone that had their guitar touched up by a luthier and still, it looked obvious and horrible. Dings add character. :)

On the plus side, you could bring the guitar to a make up counter at like Marshall Field, and have some hot chick at the counter help you out; then you're guitar serves as a really cool conversation starter!

Now that's what Im talking about. A guitar with character that still looks great! Perfect example, Drew. ;)

Ok so I looked hi and low for Revlon Crimson #35 and I dont think its available anymore. Not to be defeated, I went to Target with my girlfriend and spent some time in the nailpolish section:)

I didnt have my guitar with me, but Revlon #760 'Cherry Crush' looked *really* close to the VK finish on the 7620, so I figured it was worth a shot and bought a bottle.

Well, what do you know, but its nearly identical! I would say the color match is right about perfect, but the size of the metallic flake is a little smaller. I think that this, with some Testors (model paint) clear coat and a nice buffing might be a good fix.

Pics soon to follow...
