If anyone has any picture of an aries model in rad green with blackburst I'd love to see a pic...can't seem to find any that match my specs.

Congrats!

It can be tough to find a specific combination of model and finish. Radiation green metallic is what I consider a "classic" color in that it's been around for years, so it predates the switchover to Kiesel and the introduction of the Aries model. It has seemingly dropped in popularity since Kiesel Racing Green was introduced so there's fewer examples on recent builds. The most common use of RGM I can think of in recent years is as a burst over flamed saber green So while you might not find it on an Aries, you can find other instances, particularly on Carvin models What's really odd is that the gallery only has two examples of RGM and they're both a Type-X. :?

This is the Zeus that used RGM as a burst color over Green Saber.

Thanks for the pics and the info...the reason I was hoping for an aries with my colors is because I believe the blackburst will cover the whole bevel and I wanted to see how much green is left on the top

It will. They spray the burst to the edges of the flat top, and the entire bevel. You'll get a look like this, but in green instead of gray.

At least one of those Rad Green type-x guitars was made for Lizard Spit's NAMM 2020 booth.

I will day that KRG is a brighter green, but Radiation Green's metallic-ness is super cool. A really really cool finish. In my minds eye of my next Delos or HD, Radiation Green is one option near the top of the list of possible colors.

YeAah, my original hope was to have a metallic emerald green with blackburst but there's no emerald available...but I have to say the RAD is growing on me very fast, the more pics I see the more I'm liking the colour

Unfortunately the only way to get a metallic emerald green would be the custom route. They do have a translucent emerald green, but not as a solid color. The only way to really use trans emerald is over silver metal flake for a sparkle finish.

That would look like this.

Which is good, because what I didn't mention is that sparkle is a $640 finish, lol. $600 for silver metal flake and $40 for the trans color on top.

After careful consideration I decided to forego the Aries and get a DC600H instead...The bevel on the Aries will just have too much real estate for a blackburst...the DC looks incredible with it though.

The other alternative is a "perimeter burst" on an Aries, where they follow the outline of the body, not the outline of the flat top.

Oh nice, the perimeter burst looks good, but I have already switched to DC and I'm happy with it, not actually sure the rad green with black perimeter burst would give the look I was going for although it does look good, it's not exactly what I had in my mind.
Side note : I just saw the deposit charged to my credit card...I don't recall ever feeling so happy about a CC charge appearing on my Visa LOL
