i wanted to repaint my squire bass to a surf green. Anyone have any tips on painting or the steps to do it? Also where could i get that colour in good quality paint and how much would it cost? Any help is greatly appreciated.
If i were you, i would post this in the guitar building and customization forum. Those guys and gals over there would know about painting/anything else you want to do to your instrument.

EDITSKII: here's an FAQ on painting/refinishing: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=542726
I have:
Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.
If you want to do it yourself, I can't help you.

If you want the best in the world to do it for you, call Pat Wilkins.

Last year, I called him saying I wanted my bass to be "Honda Element Orange"

Specifically that shade of orange.

Pat made it happen, and it looks beautiful.

#1 in the world, and he is very affordable.
