Why repaint it??


Just get EKG to get you some f-hole stickies an slap dem biatches on der. It sounds like you got a really cool thing happening there. I would throw a clear cote on there and get some f-holes and be done with it. you would have a really unique axe!!!

Well....that depends on how much damage you did :lol:

Any chance of getting pics? Is it down to the wood? Painted like the PGM500?

and o yeah.. if i sent u a pic of it.. u wouldnt be able to tell the finish is gone because the red paint is like kinda sparkly... u can only tell the finish is gone from like a far distance... because u can see where the light shines back and where it doesnt

To be honest, then, I agree with roman. Just slap some f-hole stickers and rock on! But if you insist, I can help you out ;-)

Right now, with my workload, a complete refinish, I can't do :-( I am swamped making sawdust :-)

For a complete refinish, I HIGHLY recommend www.lgm-guitars.com. I get nothing for referring. I have had stuff done by him and I am very happy with his work.

Have to wait and see how much the f-hole stickers will cost when I get them back. Obviously, the more I make, the less expensive they should be ;-)

EKG, i had actually talked to a guy about making me f-hole stickers.. hes the same guy that sells the bobbin toppers on ebay.. universal jems.. he did some work on my swirl's neck a while back.. he was all psyched and never got back to me, this was like i think 8 months ago... if you are actually doing f-hole decals.. id love some.. my only concern is that i love how they are on the PG where they end up blending in with the knob.

I believe that was one of the reasons Paul put the F-holes on in the first place...he liked how it visually concealed the knob.

Yeah that is what I want to do with mine but it is going to be hard. I have to deal with 2 knobs and a switch right next to eachother. Need to find a way to incorporate them all in one of the f-holes.

On a standard RG, it will be tough to hide the controls, but the f-holes still look cool!

Brian at Universal is a cool guy. He is also a very busy guy. His toppers are great. I put some chrome ones on my JEM7DBK. I also picked up some gold, blue and white ones, too. Easy and very inexpensive way to change the look of your guitar AND it's not permanent.

I am working on the f-hole stickers, as we speak....available soon ;-)
