I used to do grip art on skateboards with metallic sharpies and they turned out pretty nice. I'd like to apply it to guitars now. Could I use metallic sharpies? I know you could use finger nail polish, but could you just draw over the original finish or would I have to sand it down first?
I'd appreciate any help.

just curious, what kind of guitar is it?

Do this



Then clearcoat... Or it will keep rubbing off and you can make something new every time.

You could, but if the finish had been waxed or has any oil on it, the results might not be as good. I'd get some wax and grease remover from an automotive paint store and wipe it down with that, first. Then decorate. Then clearcoat to protect your artwork

It's an Ibanez, one of those starter kit ones. So I can just use markers and clear coat? It has no oils or wax on it.

Don't count on it.

If it had ever been waxed, even years ago before you bought it, there will still be wax in the pores. There are oils on your hands. If you have handled the guitar, there will be oil in the pores. W&GR is cheap insurance against your clearcoat having fisheye.
