Definately not as vibrant as my first test, but the paint spread much more and it looks very clean. http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u285/Gu...0b/P1010231.jpg And here's the disapearing pyramid inlays in the fretboard, attatched to the neck.

  4. Enamel Paints have been recommended to me more than any other paint, and it is also oil based so I get the best of both worlds. It also cures very well. But only practice dips will tell.

  11. Hey, I will be attempting a swirl paint job soon and had a couple questions. First off, what is the best paint to use to get the most vibrant colors.

Anyone have experience with cool results? please post your pictures, tell of your methods, and the paints you used. Thanks!
  12. My budy honestly has one of these guitars in a purple burst. Maybe I can get the dimensions for you. For clarification do you mean the guitar that has a bunch of stars on the body, or a guitar that is extremely pointy (looks like a star).
