I have a maple neck and I want to paint it black. How do I do it, but more specifically, what kind of base coat do I need to put on?
Tape off the fretboard, and heel Scuff up any finish on the neck right now with 220 grit paper, spray some white primer on, then black, then clear. I woudl recommend a white primer, that way, when yo uspray your black you can see any of the spots you missed.
Well I'm really curious to know WHY you want to paint it black anyway ?
Thanks alot. I don't think there is any finish on it right now, so I won''t need to sand. And I want to paint it black becuase it will look awesome.
Sand it anyway. Better safe than sorry.
