Ok. So I am refinishing a an 87' Kramer Baretta. I am looking to paint it a solid white color. The problem is I am unsure of what kind of spray paint to use. I have searched the internet endlessly and have yet to find a decent response. People always seem to beat around the answer.



That is the body color I am going for. Sweet and simple. Just want suggestions on brands. I have heard automotive paints works well and others have said it doesn't. Just sick of looking and want a direct answer. I will have it clear coated by a friend so no input on that please.

ultimate painting TUT/thread.

I use enamel. Krylon/Rustoleum worked fine.

I would steer away from enamel for the sake of "easiness". Try lacquer, it's much easier to work with, and I can tell you right now all the best builders on here, including ormsbyguitars, LP Addict, and jscustomguitars use it. It's much more conducive to 1rst time success in achieving that elusive mirror-finish, too.

Enamel paints are HORRIBLE, and they buff/wear really easily where the body makes contact with the player.
