  1. 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
  2. Well, I haven't actually started the finishing process yet, mainly because I want to make sure the body is perfectly smooth, and also because I can't decide how to paint it, but that's besides the point. I was wondering if anybody knows what part of the control and pickup cavities are coated with conductive shielding paint. During disassembly, I noticed that the entire cavity in my strat knock-off was coated with what seems to be just acryllic, just like the rest of the finish. On the back of the pickguard, though, I found a silvery paint all around where the control knobs are. If anyo
  3. Alright, Thanks Man. You have no idea how much that helped me. Thank you.
  4. Hi, I am pretty new to these forums, acutally this is kind of my first post, and I was just wondering if you guys could help me out with clearing up a few things before I ruin what I have already accomplished. This is the first time that I've attempted to build my own guitar, and, although I've read through most of the tutorials at Project Guitar, I'm still a bit fuzzy about some stuff, mainly finishing. I think it'll be easier if I just list the questions... 1. What grit of sandpaper should I get up to before starting to finish the body? 2. Is it possible to simply draw on the body
