Hey all, bought this NT Beast off a guy for $300, and decided I needed to modify it a bit for it to become my stage guitar. I decided to have it repainted.
It's going to have a base layer of silver, silver flake over that, and finally a layer of candy green. I'm going to be leaving the bevels black.

Original:


Sanded:




Taped:
(As a side note, due to the black with blue pinstriping looking so sick, I may do my next guitar that way :P)






Starting painting tomorrow.

Looks good. Also looks like you took time with your tape job. That makes all the difference.

And your socks don't match.

Can't wait to see the finished results. Can't picture what the finished colour scheme is gonna be like, but it sounds wicked

Where did you get your thin tape??? I've been looking everywhere for that stuff for an extremely long time. I just peel off the sides of the thick painters tabe and it works, but not as good as that would.

Got delayed around Christmas time, but made some progress today.

The green is a little dull looking in these pictures. I'll upload some more pictures in some better light as soon as I'm ready to start putting the new pups and hardware in.

Looks really cool, not at all what I was expecting . any reason for leaving all the original paint and clear on though?
#11
We sanded the clear down, but left the black just so we wouldn't have to paint the bevels black. :P

I don't like the shape of most BC Rich guitars, especially this one. But with the green it actually looks cool, sort of "alien" style.

I was expecting this to turn out really tacky, then I was like "Hey, that's a pro paint booth".

It looks badass - I hope you have black hardware to go on it now.


Yep, got an original FR, all black knobs and tuners, and some Blackouts.

Not a big fan of the shape of the beast but the paint looks amazing. The black bevels really make the guitar look wicked...

WOW...! Time to go and masturbate lol. Brlliant job, awesome, the only way to improve is to do the black outline thing around the outside of the headstock, but other than that...fantastic dude.
