    Custom/rare JP colors

    JP colors/finish are pretty limited, so its really awesome when I come across something I haven't seen before! Lets see some custom or rare JP finishes!

    I'll start it off with this bad boy! It belongs to Jason Richardson! Custom/rare JP colors-uploadfromtaptalk1467823321066-jpgCustom/rare JP colors-uploadfromtaptalk1467823341756-jpg

    That's burled... something - what exact wood? Looks too light to be walnut, but I'm not sure exactly what wood we're talking about.

    Is that a stock "made by EBMM" top?!

    I was going to contribute that same one when I saw the title. IMO, that is nicest JP ever made. Would love to see something like that in a production model.

    I've also seen different variations of the JPX; sparkle green, some sort of red (sprakle cinnamon red, I think?), and the Mystic Dream variation that was only available in Japan.

    I swear that I seen a tobacco burst JP on here. Can't remember who it was though. It was so awesome!

    Well the original BFR run had a tobacco burst finish, no? I think they then also did a tobacco burst PDN run?

    Can anyone verify either statement?

    Oh I did not know that! I've only been part of the JP family for about six months, so there's a lot left to learn for me!

    Those are beautiful! How does one come to own a custom?? You pretty much have to be an artist, right?

    Yep! That, or be lucky enough to find one that an artist has sold. I have seen quite a number of those floating around.

    Saw this one on Facebook today:

    Custom colors to me are distinctly different than rare colors. Even rare colors aren't custom beyond a BFR run, no?

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone customize their JP (i.e. paint it).
    '97 Axis Sport Transparent Purple
    '05 JP6 Medallion Gold
    '09 Axis Amber Quilt
    '11 JP6 Pearl White
    '11 Axis Purple Quilt
    '12 SM-Y2D Purple Sunset
    '18 Majesty Monarchy Majestic Purple

    MY MUSIC is on Facebook and Reverbnation.

    There have been lots of opportunities for rare and/or custom finishes over the years - short lived BFR colors, PDNs, Guitar Center special runs, hand signed runs, forum runs (the Dargies), NAMM samples, CLB auctions, and of course th artist prototypes and one-offs. As far as people customizing, there's been that too - Pete did a couple, there was a glow in the dark swirl that I think Norrin Radd did, then a few other 'refurbs'.
