First Time Paint Job

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody. I am considering buying a cheap guitar off ebay, and then doing a Van Halen paint job on it. I would then upgrade pickups, etc.

If anyone could help on how to do a paint job, stripping paint, sealer coat, it would be much appreciated. By the way, i have never done a paint job before, and dont know all that much about it.

Thanks for your time.

Here is the guitar i was thinking of purchasing: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/BONPLAY-HEAVY-METAL...1QQcmdZViewItem

Just quickly: If the guitar's finish is good, don't strip it, unless you are doing a trans finish. So long as the original finish is solid, stripping is reallt unnecessary, and tedious. Give the original finish a good scuff sand, and go from there. Then, you don't have to worry about grain filling, and whatnot, either.
