Hi. I'm planing on painting my guitars body. It's either gonna be canary yellow or just ghost white. My question is is it better to use flat paint or gloss paint? I'm going to be useing clear coat BTW, so I don't know wheather gloss would even be neccesary but i just want to make sure.
It doesn't really matter. If you want to be careful, you can use gloss, shouldn't make a difference, though.
I've had good experiences with auto paints, I would recommend them. However, most have to be sprayed with a spray gun, which can be a pain, and they're pretty expensive. Ketone makes some in a can, with a lot of colors available, if I remember correctly.
Just don't mix lacquers with auto paints!
