I was inquiring about refinish my 1991 RG570 guitar in Desert Yellow about a month back, so found an enamel called Sun Yellow. Here are the finished pics. Also, I put Steve Via EVO's in the bridsge and Neck. These are the finished pics and the last is the original color from 1991.

Yes, sorry to say I used spray cans. KRYLON RUST TOUGH ENAMEL (RTA 9211 Sun Yellow) and DEFT brand Gloss clear Lacquer. Wet or Dry paper (600,800,1000,1500,2000). That's it - But, I like the results.

GEX, it's definitely a RG570. Posted on the back of the neck. However, the year from the serial number is a 1992. I just always called it a 91 since I bought it in late 1991.

I have to original black dome knobs, but I like the JEM/Numbered knobs better.

I Also just realized I may be dating this guitar wrong. I never can quite remember the year I bought this, thought the serial number F920681 meant it was a '92, but from reading other's numbers, this may be a 1989? My stock pickups didn't have the V7/V8 logos on it.

I'd like to do a JEM project one day, other than the aesthics of the JEM (Monkey grip, claw cavity, vines, etc...) With the Evolution Pickups in my RG570 now, what's the other real differences? I think Steve Vai even put this older Edge trem in his #1 EVO.

That's what I'm searching for info on. Actually there's an 1989 RG570 on E-B-A-Y right now with the shark inlays and they say the same thing. I have RG570 stamp on the back of my neck nexy to the serial number.

They must have made some RG570's with Shark inlay since I got one. I do recall it was rare back then.
