I want to repaint my Cort Curbow bass. It has a few knicks in the paint and a few scrapes here and there and I was wandering how to go about it? Can I sand and paint it the same as wood? Thanks in advance.

I plan to repaint it a different color, but I'm not sure if I have to use special sandpaper, primer, paint, etc.
So...are you telling me to post there or look there? I didn't see anything on luthite...
