To a different color (Like white or black or something). How much would it cost, and could they get an even, solid color like the one it comes in?

You use the word 'they', as if you're getting someone to paint it for you..

does that mean you want to know how much a store/shop would charge to repaint?

or did you mean to do it yourself?

a diy job can get done with under $50, and varied results, depending how good you are/ how careful you are

at a shop, I have no idea how much they'd charge, you have to ask them. and they SHOULD get a profesional, factory-like finish. afterall, they're a busness, and thats what you're paying for

I'll definitely be getting someone else to do it. I've never done anything like that before so I wouldn't even want to try.

I'd say they probably charge upwards of a 100 bucks. It's a lot of work

If you ask a friend to do it, shouldn't cost you much.
If you ask a professional, you might as well do it yourself..


Take a look at the paint sticky. It's easy to get a nice finish with just some hard work and spray paint. Get some sandpaper, and micro mesh and buffing compound. Do a little bit of research, and then go at it. If you mess up the paint, no big deal- just sand it down and paint again.

I am very unartistic, and I am not good with my hands. I'd probably have to sand the guitar down into splinters before I ever get it right.

You don't need to be artistic, your spraying a solid color on. It has nothing to do with this paint job. All this requires is hard work, and for you to pay attention to what your doing. It's seriously not that bad.

If you do it yourself make sure to take your time and pay attention to the small details. I sanded through the paint a bit on the bottom of my guitar and couldn't be bothered to tape it all off again and touch it up, now halfway through the clearcoat I'm regretting it.

Honestly its very straight-forward, especially if your just doing a solid color. And if you do mess up just sand it down again and take it to a shop, you'll only have wasted ~$20 of spraypaint and some time, no biggie.

Guitar Center will do it for $400-500, which is outrageous.

wow..

I really suggest trying it yourself/with a friend. even if you mess up and want to re-do it, it certainly won't cost $400

Which is why you should do it yourself.
