  1. Hi I am currently starting to design artwork for my first homemade guitar. It's a basswood body and I have no idea how to have it painted, what would be the best way to go around this? It will be quite detailed artwork so how would I paint the guitar and be able to play it at gigs without it fading / scraping off? I play grunge or metal depending which of my bands I'm gigging with so lots of jumping around and showing off
  2. I'm currently working on a build for an LP Semi-Hollow Guitar. I was looking around for the finish I want to give it and decided on this. However, I'm not sure what paint Gibson used when they were making this model. Thoughts?
  3. Hi there, I'm completely new to guitar building and have an unfinished custom thinline Tele design body I need to treat and finish. The body is swamp ash and I really want to make good use of the grain patterns and give it a charcoal stain look. I'm aiming for something like the attached photo, if possible. I'm looking for advice for the best way to achieve this and on the stains (brands/colours) to use. If anyone could help me out and point me in the right direction, it'd be much appreciated. Many thanks! Alz
  4. Hi guys, I have a few questions. I want to build a little spray paint booth and I want to ask if any of you have advices for me. My main question is if my intake/exhaust placement makes sense. Right now it is designed to have the air intake at the top and air exhaust at the bottom, opposite sides. Should they both be at the rear of the spray paint booth? The booth size will be 5' x 5' x 7"6", it will be covered with polythene plastic, have 4x 48" neon (Outside the booth of course). I have a a belt-driven fan I plan to run over a ~10 meters 6-8" flexible duct outside. And I will use 1
  5. I am rebuilding and repainting a Johnson Strat that I have had since is was 7 (know 19). I am going to repaint it but I need some help figuring out what a ertain design is called or how to do it. The design I am looking for almost looks like really little tiger stripes but faded, no solid. I mostly see it on les paul models, or guitars that dont have a scratch guard that covers most of the body. At Guitar Center's website, their les paul page has a picture of a guitar with this print, but I can not find what the print is called. Here is a link to the Website: http://www.guitarcenter.c
  6. Here are the basic tools you will need to get this job done. On the right are a few that aren't necessary but they do come in handy when working on this type of stripping project! Here is why this body is a very good candidate for using a chemical stripper. It has already been refinished by somebody else. Often that can be the case when you're buying second-hand out of a pawn shop or off an Internet auction. These are often really good deals too. Don't be surprised if you run into body imperfections when stripping one that has already been refinished. It is very common and we will deal with
  7. First of all this will work using any spray paint method be it from a can, air brush or paint gun so don't worry about having to purchase expensive equipment. You will need: Trace out your guitar body onto reasonably-thick card as shown below then cut out your template. Place push pins around the template at least 1" from the sides for support. Placing your template on the guitar body use pennies, nickels or quarters (washers if you genuinely are a PoorBoy) taped in tubes as weights. The idea here is to hold the template down on the guitar body. Be sure that the template is aligned
