is there a certain type of spray used to give guitar that gloss look?

can someone maybe post a link to a light blue spraypaint suitable for guitars?

Id try the gear building and customising subsection, this is where it should go and the ppl there will know a lot more

Basic answer is theres different finishes, so it depends on the finish you want to use whether that be nitro or poly or w/e. Also the type of body wood might make a small difference.

You can spray pretty much anything good with Montana Gold.
If your spraying a cheap black guitar white, use a white primer, that way it actually turns white and not some crappy grey when you use normal spray paint.

If your using any other colours aswel on a black guitar make sure you used the white primer first, then spray it on.

I'm not trying to sound Racist, but black is just a useless canvas to spray paint.

the glossy look come from several layer of paint the a few layers of clear coat plus hours of sanding with incredibly fine sandpaper. but any paint will do just gotta pick the color you want
Stuff that I bought:

Washburn WM24V
Raven RG100 Amplifier
Zoom G1X Multi-Effects Pedal

how do you define a guitar for a female?
how about one that whines and has trouble with feedback?

for cheep paint use dupli color acrilic laquer they have it in black and white. use the duplicolor clear to seal it. you'll need 3-5 cans of color to do the body and 2 for the clear. look in the guitar building section for better info.

if you want amazing results, fork out the cash for cans of nitro.

if you don't, use acrylic laquer.

the difference isnt huge, but it is there.

you will need primer, color and clear. probably enough clear for 6-8 coats.

I used this stuff - ReRanch

Make sure you take your time sanding off the old paint, adding primer/sanding, then spraying a lot of coats of paint and sanding with decreasing grit sandpaper, then clearcoat. Definitely take your time and spend the money to get good paint. My refinish took about a month.
