I've had this thing forever, but never learned how to play it. I felt like updating its looks though.









This is an old ibanez starter bass. It came transparent red. I wet sanded the factory finish and layed out some graphics with tape. I then sprayed the charcoal metallic and peeled the tape. Next was clear coat. Wet sanded that and added another coat. Wet sanded that coat, and then buffed, polished, and waxed!

I won't be posting much of anything worth while until I find another guitar to paint! But thanks for looking!

thats a sweet paint job. it looks real good. in the picture of the back it looks like the graphic is almost floating over the red base color. sweet

Wow thanks you guys! I wasn't expecting so many compliments.

Gian, you're actually right about that! The factory clearcoat was pretty thick, so the graphics really are "floating" in the paintjob.
I didn't take any close up pictures. but if you were to look at the guitar the right way you could see small shadows, and also look under the graphics. Its hard to tell in the pictures because I downsized them and lost some of the clarity. I'll get a few close ups for you guys!
