it definately would i did the same thing. I had a black guitar and put the painters tape over places i wanted to be black and then painted it white. Although i would suggest atleast scruffing up the other parts of the guitar that will be painted over, so that the white paint will stick better.

Why don't you want to sand? It's not like you have to take any paint off, just rough it up. You won't know in the end that you even sanded..it's gonna be white.

Why don't you listen? You ask for advice, which two people give you including reasons why and still you question it?

IF, you do not scuff sand the parts you want to paint, the new paint will not stick, will chip and or peel and look sh!t

Use blue plastic masking tape to mask it out. Use a 600 grit wet and dry (wet) or a maroon scuff pad, and scuff the part you want to paint, just to remove the shine.

Replace the masking tape.

Then paint it. really you should prime it first, but see what happens.

Let the paint dry for 10 mins then pull the masking tape and let it dry fully.

you could use the
SEARCHBAR FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

I'm tired of these threads that pop up continuously asking the same question. It's redundant, and there's no point in clogging the forums with something that's already been answered. If you're gonna post pics of progress it's one thing, but for a question like this, you can easily use google or the searchbar. Both will provide you with more than enough results.
