Adding Stripes Possible? PLEASE HELP

hey guys, relatively new here and was wondering if anyone knows whats a good way to add some sort of graphic to my guitar. I recently got a Gretsch Thunderbird which I am loving the hell out of and I want to put 3 black stripes vertically down the back of the body, how can i accomplish this. Some sort of watermark? I really have no idea how to do this so I really appreciate any input you guys have in how I can do this. I also want to put a small song title in some space of the back of the body.
Please help
Thanks, Shabbar

Get some painters tape, cover up what you don't want painted and paint it. Pretty simple. As far as a lyric, if you or someone you know has a steady hand you could also use a fine brush and paint that on.

If you want it to look perfect you'll want to sand the body down and repaint the whole thing, but that's a serious pain in the ass.
