riddlebox Posted April 29, 2009 Report Share Posted April 29, 2009 Hello to all, I'm sort of new on these forums. That is, I've looked through them for a while for research and to get ideas, but have never actually posted. So, being pretty new to customizing guitars I have a few questions. I'm in the process of sanding down the finish on my old strat copy, and am just sort of thinking ahead to the painting process. I was wondering, after all of the original finish is stripped, can I just essentially put a coat of regular primer on the body, and then put a coat or two of white paint down, and then draw whatever it is that I want to put on the guitar in markers/pencil/paint, and then seal it with lacquer or poly? Will this work and look good, or should I go about it in a different fashion? Also, though this is getting a bit ahead of myself, if I wanted to apply a custom inlay of some sort to the fretboard, would I be forced to get a new fretboard, or would I be able to utilize the existing fretboard, and just incorporate the dots that are already in place into whatever design I eventually use? Thanks for any help, and I'm sure I'll be back eventually with more questions Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
