I love fluorescent guitars also!

I have one of these (this pic isn't of mine, it's from google images);

It's an RG1XXV-FPK, and it's both hideous and beautiful. I saw it in a music shop in Cambridge where I live and had to have it.

But recently I've gotten into trying to paint my own designs, like these:


The one on the left is a 7 string JEM body, it's fluorescent green (the neck pictured is a jason becker/paradise guitars style numerical neck to match it).

The middle guitar is a RG (with jem style lions claw), painted in fluorescent pink with black over the top. I really like how this one turned out, it's got a few mistakes visible from my dodgy painting technique, but I still like the way it turned out.

The one on the right isn't one I did myself, it's my fake 6 string JEM that I got from ebay a few months back, it's the worst build quality I've ever seen on any guitar, but for some reason it feels fantastic to play and sounds amazing, it's my favourite guitar at the moment.

I currently use the fluro-pink ibanez live, in a covers band that plays in pubs. The people hate it.

Those jacksons' look amazing, the green and yellow are the best two.

NICE GUITARS!!!! Those are some SPIFF customs!!! Records some vids and share when you get your builds ROCKING!

Those new JACKSON guitars have NECK THROUGH BODY as well!! And they are going brand new for $550! That seems crazy cheap! Double locking trem, GREEN or YELLOW spiff paint, NECK THROUGH BODY, etc

Just seems like an amazing deal on a Jackson smile.gif I can't wait to try one!!!!!

Sure thing, the black/pink RG should be done in a few weeks when I get back from the states.

I will definitely record something with it, I think so long as the feel of it is acceptable then it'll become my main gigging guitar so I should be putting in quite a few hours with it.

I plan on finishing up the green 7 string before I fly out on sunday, so that I can leave the clear coat to harden while I'm away ready for sanding/buffing.
