HiMyNameIsTrev Posted August 31, 2007 Report Share Posted August 31, 2007 (edited) Hi everyone ! This is my first post here ! So right now, I want to paint my Black Tom Delonge strat, I purchased it a year ago off ebay for $650.00 , Its a 2001, mexican build. Ive already took everything out of the guitar. So I now have a bare body. And before I get to the sanding, I of course need to know what type of paint I want to use. I already know I want to paint it surf green. And I just need to know what type of paint I need to use. Ive read alot of "how to paint your guitar tutorials" on the internet and some suggested "car paint". And Ive looked around the internet and Ive found surf green "nitrocellulose lacquer" for the white primer, the surf green lacquer, and the clear coat, added up is about $93.00 USD Thats kinda over what I want to spend. But I do want it looking as close as possible to a factory finish. So my question is can I go the cheap way and achieve a nice finish ? Or is the "nitrocellulose lacquer"the way to go ?
