Hey there guys, I am working on a project right now, trying to re-create this guitar:



But I can't seem to find suitable Hot Pink Paint Anywhere! Because I can't use those crappy "krylon" paint cans on a guitar right? I mean I want this to turn out really good.

I'll post some pics of the guitar body I am working on if you guys want.

I just need some help finding some guitar suitable Bright Pink Paint! help me out guys!

Buy an airbrush and I believe House of Kolor (or Color?) has some suitable pink.

Also most (car) body shops will mix you and color paint you want.

but would it work on a guitar? I thought those paints are made for Metal car bodies?

ive heard of many people useing car paints, so i would think that they work well.

Check the finishing thread, I thought they said something about the krylon being great
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

It shouldnt make any difference using auto paint on wood as long as you prime it first, which you would have to do anyway. It should be fine.

I'd love to see some pics too!

Well I'm pretty damn sure that's an Epiphone Wilshire. Not an Ibanez.

Nah, its a custom Ibanez Paul had way back in the 80's. Does look similar to a Wilshire though.
EDIT: Ibanez made the pink one for Paul based on an Epiphone Coronet. (TY Racer X board)

I've read that same FAQ, and it seems like this one actually is an Epiphone.
I have a question, though- if it's a Coronet, then why does it look nothing like one, and instead exactly like a Wilshire? (Body shape, humbucker/mini-humbucker combo, switch placement, apparent scale length)

It's not an Ibanez for starters.

Either ask Paul for the paint code via e-mail or ask over on the racer x boards

but id like to see those pics

If your not going to help then dont even post.
TS, Car paints seem to work good, for a pink that bright though you'd have to put on quite a few layers of paint.

No I'm not Jesus. I would aspire to be though. I think under circumstances he would let you pay less if you needed to.

Paul's been on Ibanez since the early Racer X days, so i'd imagine it will be an Ibanez. I'm sure i've read at some point he owns a few of the law suit ibanez guitars, when gibson and epiphone tried to sue ibanez for plagiarism of their shapes.

Car paint works great. In england, we have a shop called halfords which is like a big car accesory shop. They have huge amounts of different colour spray paint for cars, which work fine on guitars too. Do have something like this where you are? If so, check them out.
#17
wow thanks for all the responses guys! I guess I'll head down to my local Auto Body shop later today and see if they can help me out!

And I will take pics in a couple hours when It gets light outside haha =)

AS for the Guitar Itself... I think what happened was Paul had a real Epiphone Coronet, and Painted it pink. Then he got on board with Ibanez and they Made him a custom version of his previous one. He had a pink one, and an Orange one. and I think bruce bouillet had the Lime green one

hmm...im soo gonna have to do a retro guitar at some point <3

exept it sucks, cos any chic i talk to that's my age, doesnt understand the 80's, and how awesome it was.

i would have liked to have been born a little earlyer.... well, alot earlyer (16 atm : |)

i wonder what happens if i get all the awesome colours of the 80's, and swirl them across a guitar...
i realy want to try that :3

anywho, i hope to see some awesomeness soon! rock on!

I Agree Metal Matt! people don't understand anymore that if you can Shred like Paul Gilbert on a PINK GUITAR, you are a god and should get laid. haha

Back to the axe at hand. Got some eye candy for you guys. Will be going to an Auto body shop later today. maybe they can fix me up with the Most shocking pink! This is the body After I stripped the black, Grainfilled it 2x and put on 2 coats of Sanding sealer. It is SOO smooth now !!

The shape isn't perfect but any re-creation of that guitar is worth it's weight in awesome!
Though that doesn't make sense, I think you get the sentiment

My favourite of all Gilbert's guitars.
And I saw a bit of a debate about what guitar it is, it IS an Epiphone Wilshire, Ibanez kinda remade it as an RG, labeled the Telesavalas.

Can't wait to see this done.
