To do the stripes on the paintjob do I paint Black, then add tape, then paint white, add tape for white lines then paint red. Or do I paint black, add tape, paint white, remove tape, add white lines and black, paint red???????

Depends how you want it. If you want a red guitar with black and white stripes, start with a black guitar. Tape it off, then paint it white. Once you have what looks like the original Frankenstrat (white with black stripes), tape it off again and paint it red.

the first. think like this. start with black. the tape is determining where the BLACK stripes will be. paint white. add more tape. this tape will be the WHITE strpes. then red will cover anything not a stripe.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

1) Paint it black (lol).
2) Tape where you want black lines.
2) Paint it white.
3) Add more tape where you want white lines.
4) Paint red.
5) Remove all tape.

If you remove the tape after adding the black and add new tape then you just paint over the black lines.

I still don't think number one will work because there are parts of the guitar where the white and black are together in one stripe and what not. We took all the tape off after the coat of white then masked off for the red. It worked fine, I'm not sure the way number one describes it will look as good as you think. After all, he originally had the guitar white and black, and only some time later did he paint over it in red. So unless he went back and added all the original tape, then I don't think he did it like number one.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

That's what I did on mine. Mine's not an exact replica of Eddie's. It's an EVH inspired guitar. Mine has an Squier body that looks kind of like an an Ibanez. I'm gonna make a thread about mine soon. It'll have several pics to show step by step how I did it.

Here's a sneek peak at mine.
