Headstock Inlay Help

Recommended Posts

i want to do a headstock and it needs to be painted after the Mop is in . Do i mask the logo or do i just paint over it and scrape the paint later .

Any tips would be a big help

Mask it for sure. Funny, I just did another post on this same subject 30 seconds ago. Go get a product called Friskit from any good artist supply stores. The stuff works great.

Thanx for the relpy

will do

An old Gibson trick is this;

You take two inlays, the inlay that is already inlaid on the guitar is hit with some lacquer.

Then stick your second inlay on top of the first. The finish will act as glue, sticking the second inlay on the first.

Spray away, and pop off the second inlay with a razor blade. Works like a charm!
