So basically, I'm painting my white/maple Fender Strat like the Monterey strat.
For those of you who don't know what it looks like, go here:

This is where I'm at right now. The dark red is just the 2 coats of primer. By tomorrow afternoon it should hopefully be white, the first color.

Also, on a completely unrelated note, my new kickass t-shirt:

Thanks guys. I think I'm gonna do the whole design thing in the paint for plastic stuff so the wooden parts look the same as the pickguard.

Update:

Catastrophe! The body was dropped during painting and is going to require some sanding. I think i'm just going to go with a stained top finish.

Update: I feel like such a failure for this As with my last guitar painting, I started with the intention of one design and ended with another. I currently have the same red to white fade the original design has, but without the lines and shit. The pickguard is all black with my initials painted on it in a cool-type font. Should be ready to play by tomorrow evening
