Right, I want to paint my guitar Matt/ Satin black.
Im okay doing all the sanding and stuff, im just confused by the satin
Do you put a finish over the paint? Or just not put a clear coat?
I got a nice satin finish from using gloss paint, i just didnt sand it right the way to 2000 grit or w/e. It was a natural finish, and once i'd sprayed it with gloss the final time it looked nice the way it was, so I just polished it up as it was. Lovely satin finish.

use a gloss black ..the satin comes from the clearcoat..


dont use a gloss lacquer and try to get a satin finish, in fact if you spray it good, you don't have to sand much anyway.

regular paint, matte lacquer. done
