Hi guys,

I've seen Eric Clapton

(http://www.sytner.co.uk/ferrari/maranello-egham/about-us/news-and-events/datafinder/news/~/media/News/2010/02/Eric_Clapton_1328_19597098.ashx)

with a colored custom guitar that was repainted.

Do you guys think I can repaint my guitar without changing it's tone? Or did Eric have his painted with a special paint?

I saw on the Gibson website special paints/finishes are needed for the guitar to "breathe".

you wont really change the tone by repainting the guitar. Strip it down to the wood, and put on a nitro cellulose lacquer when you are done (you can also do Poly, but many people think nitro is better...including EC).

hendrix painted one of his too, but i think he's just bought some paint from an art store and got to work.
