Hey guys i picked up a cheap bass guitar for pretty much nothing. Its got nasty marks and scatches and stuff. I want to paint it more so just for the experience and to see how well it will turn out. Im wondering if anyone knows of any guides or has any tips on doing this. Im looking to just do it fairly cheap the guitar isnt worth much. Most of the guides i seen were for high end stuff to get a top quality finish.

Use the searchbar and search for ultimate painting and refinishing thread. It's all there.
