Has anyone here come across an online service that will make a color matched aerosol can for you? For example, if you were to mail in a paint chip of the color, then they send back a can of it. I'd love to color-match the headstock on my RG7620, Vampire Kiss Red is a really strange color!

If you want the color to do a guitar then go to your local Sherwin Williams auto paint supply store. They have a much better color eye than a home Depot and at home Depot you won't be able to the get the right paint to do a guitar. Depending on the color you may never get a 100% match but you should be able to something close. An aerosol can of urethane auto paint should run you about 20 bucks.

Awesome! Yeah, I knew about the Home Depot color matching, but they really only do house paint. I talked to Sherwin Williams & they can do it.... For about $50 :-( maybe if I can get 1-2 other VK finish owners to go in on the project I'll do it. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hello,
Some automotive parts stores that have automotive refinishing supplies, Dupont, PPG etc. will have a camera that can scan the color you have and come up with a paint code for a spot on match. Our local carquest carries dupont and they have one and it words great. They can also put the paint in a spray can for you.
