Well i really want to paint my guitar, but i've never done it before, so i was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on how to go about it, and maybe what kinds of paint and such i should use.

I wanna paint my Les Paul white with a black pickguard, but because its my first time i figured i would paint my broken squier strat first as practice.
Who cares about squiers, use water colors. But don't paint a les paul! no offense about the squier I have two of them
