i have been trying to contact rega directly for a question,my heart was truly set on a gloss yellow rega in either the p1, p2 or p3 but i was told by few hi-fi stockists they axed the majority of colours and just really keeping stuck to white, black, red and green does anyone know if rega would be up for creating a custom order ?

Highly unlikely I would have thought.

Hi John13,

As David suggests the colour options were / are largely on RP6 turntables and it is true we have discontinued many of the options.

This is due to substantial minimum order quantities on plinths and slow sell through of some finishes. It is the very same minimum order quantities that preclude us doing one off customised finishes.

Having studied our stock situation I can confirm at this point in time we have one yellow RP6 in UK stock, so if you wanted that (it will be the very last available) then you could order through your Rega franchised dealer.

Hope this helps, and I hope I have not contavened any forum rules,

Best regards,

Paul Darwin

Shame that you haven’t got on with Rega, love my RP3 but sometimes things don’t just work out.

I like Rega tables. Not sold on their migraine-inducing colours. But as an affordable package (cart, arm, lid) they are very good. Then again, they should be as they started out as turntable specialist decades ago.
