what has david gilmours strat got to do with it. all you're doing is building a singlecoil guitar
#3
that is correct, (using David's EMGs)

but that wasnt the question. It was How to paint it. I was thinking about using a natural finish. Prices? Places to buy? What not to buy?

Well if you're building a "David Gilmour strat", why not paint it black like his?

^This.
Also if I'm not mistaken his strat is made out of alder not mahogany.

Yeah I figured if you're going for a Gilmour styled strat it would be helpful to know that. Also you should look up his sig model, and see what the specs are so you can make yours as close as possible. Also are you planning on relicing it so it'll look more exact or no? O only ask cause I love looking at good relics.
Hope all goes well.
