my wish would be to order a white 330 with black pickguard and trussrod cover and chrome r tailpiece and mechanics like the weller one in the picture...I think I've read somewhere in this forum that although it's not a standard color it's possible from time to time that some white ricks are made.

So I'd like to know if it's possible, even waiting for a longer period, to go to my local dealer and place an order for such a beauty. thanks in advance!

RIC has done a few new White finishes recently. One is Snowglo, the other is Pearl White.

But they are not able to be ordered as of yet as standard finishes. RUBY came back as a standard finish after many years - so fingers crossed Snowglo gets added to the lineup at some point.

The Japanese distributor ordered some Snowglo 330 and 620 guitars early in 2014.

The Pearl White was used on that lovely custom 480 WB that Ben shared to the RIC facebook group last month.

The Black plastic and hardware Ebay is your only option I think. Or find a used example of a White 330 from the late 80s early 90s.

Good luck on the search.

thanks, but can you help me spot the difference between snowglo and pearl white?

do you think that, paying an extra for the custom color, would it still be possible to order a 330 like the one in the picture?

Sorry but we don't do custom orders.

SnowGlo is a solid white color while PearlWhite is pearlescent, i.e. has some hologram-like color reflectivity.
