If I was going to pinstripe my guitar, would automotive pinstripe tape work? If I removed it would it damage the finish on my guitar. It's a plain black finish.

I'm looking for something a little metallic silver looking. Not just plain white tape.

i had black electrical tape on my guitar for like 5 months covering the hole where the 3way toggle was and i took it off like a week ago and it didn't leave any damage. stuff was pretty sticky so i'd imagine car tape would work fine.

Good Point, I see guys covering their empty neck pickups with duct tape.

i put a duct tape racing stripe on my squire strat to imitate the stripe on the fender mustangs. it doesnt sound that badass until u see it, but anyways, i havent taken it off to see if there is any damage but hopefully there isnt. from what these guys have said before me i doubt there will be, so thanks for unintentionally helping me

Yea I'm going for (DONT LAUGH ) a synyster custom kind of look. Not exactly the same though. I'm getting a Jackson DK2S, so I'm thinking of spicing up my Hellraiser with some pinstripes.

So from this:



To this (minus the crappy pickups and gaudy inlays of course):

+97. i never could understand the appeal of the shecter syn.

pinstriping you're hellraiser could look cool, or it could look weird, i'm not sure how i feel about it yet. if that's the look you're going for though by all means go for it.

It would be a lot of work.

Automotive instriping tape should be fine, just make sure that it is compatible with the paint you use!

Or else paint-demons will chop off your penis during the night.

Well, actually, it will just ruin the paint job...

take it to an auto paint shop that custom paints and have them paint realistic flames on it.



What is the point of this post?

He wishes to pinstripe his guitar, and is curious about what tape to use...

i'm guessing that if you removed this paint it would leave goop just like anything else, but other than that it shouldn't cause any damage to the paint with all the clear coat they put on top of that finish

I'm thinking maybe red stripes, I think that would look sick.

Black. If some of you are misunderstanding me I'm not going to actually paint the pinstripes on. I'm just gonna use the vinyl tape, I saw a guy do it on his jackson and it looked fine. Plus if I change my mind I'm not screwed.

I'm not hating on syn, I am a big synyster fan, just not a fan of his guitar. It's a bit too gaudy for my taste. And I would change out the invaders cuz they sound puketastic, so it would be a waste to get one.

Like I said I'm thinking red, like this:

i've always loved the way red and black look together, good choices. the only reason i was questioning how it would look is because i thought your avenger was black cherry. now that i know it's black i think it'll look pretty awesome.

Awesome. This will be a cool project. I like the idea of red. Maybe one with some sort of texture.

EDIT: PURPLE IS A GREAT IDEA!!!!!!! I really like Gold too.

Here is a color chart:

I don't think many people have seen the red. That's the only pic in existence where I have seen it in red. I've never seen him play live with guitar.

I'm pretty sure I'm going with purple.

Haven't you seen the beast and the harlot video? I just think something lighter will look better than purple but hey your guitar!

gold would look pretty sweet, if you don't go with red.

AHHHH..... Good point. My bad, been so long since I've seen that.

It's just tape. I may buy like 3 colors and try them out. Or I may not do it at all.

I thought that when you said about the colour of the guitar and the colour of the pin stripes you wanted.

part of what makes a pin stripe suit so badass is that the stripes are very subtle. syn's guitar looks kinda cool, but the striping hits you in the face way too hard. whatever you do use thin lines and a shade that stands out a little against your finish. it would look sick as hell.

Having different thicknesses helps too as in evh's guitar for instance
