I got my RGD 2127Z a good 3 months ago and I finally have some musical downtime to get her refinished. I originally planned to send it over to the LACS for refinishing and small neck sanding, but the wait time wouldn't be worth it for a simple paint job and sanding that could probably do myself.
Luckily, the father of one of my bassist's students just refinished one of his guitars and man... it looks incredible! Since his came out so nice I figured the guy was legit & trustworthy enough. With all of these horror stories about people sending their guitars off to be redone and getting screwed over, I wanted to make sure that I sent it to someone I can trust with the project.
Iíve was thinking about different things I can do to my rig that will make is more visually appealing, so I decided on a ďWhite/BlackĒ theme across the board (rig picstory coming soon). The guitar will be refinished with a Pearl White (see below), Black pickups w/black poles (Liquifire and Miracle Man FTW), and the cosmic hardware which is my personal favorite finish for hardware. I thought about matching the headstock, but I think the black headstock will still look sexy as fuck and contrast for that B&W effect.
Here it is in its original, stock boringness:
(sorry drewbie, itís the best picture Iíve got of it :lol)
And here is the color Iím getting:
(There will be more shimmer in my color, but you get the idea here)
Have him add a handle.
