Overspray For Gilmour Black Strat Tribute

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an alder strat body in poly 3 tone sunburst which I need to relic to show wear and paint black as for David Gilmour's black strat. How much preparation do I need to do before I do the overspray coats?

I also need to do a similar job for the neck which is a 1994 Squier, and requires to be amber as for vintage necks. This too will be poly not nitro, same question regarding preparation.

I'm going to give a standard answer here and say read the manufacturers information for the paint you are going to use. It will tell you to sand to a specific grit and clean in a certain way. You probably are scuffing with a red or grey scotchbrite, or sanding in the neighborhood of 400 grit. This assumes you are not dealing with a damaged or worn surface.
