Hi all, in June I started playing electric guitar again after a long lay-off, and took the guitar into a so-called luthier to have it set up. This luthier damaged my guitar extensively. It's a long story, but I'm looking for touch-up paint for the guitar where he chipped the paint off. My guitar is perfectly playable, but I want to try to erase all signs that this hack ever touched my guitar. I know it's extremely unlikely I'd find paint in that color, but I thought I'd ask. Also, I contacted Ibanez and am awaiting a reply. Thanks!

Unfortunately, Ibanez doesn't have any touch up paint for any old or new guitars. Some guitar parts suppliers online(like Stew Mac) sell touch up paints/markers/glues, but these are usually black or red or something a little more "standard".

My best recommendation would be to contact some local automotive repair places. Any place that does refinishing/collision repair/painting may have the means by which to color match your guitar, just like they would color match a car finish. It may be a long shot, but I think it is your best bet to get a match in color.

Hope this helps!
