I'm gonna start painting my guitar at the weekend once i've sanded it, so can anyone tell me what the best type of paint/primer/finisher to put on. Cheers

Yeah, it was...
Duplicolor white primer
Duplicolor seat red (two stage paint - stage one) <--lol, you do stage one first :p
Duplicolor clear finish (two stage paint - stage two)
It's simple, sand it (don't have to take paint off though, just rough it up, then smooth it down. just hang it up with string/coat hanger and spray. Need to let it dry though, don't do think coats, lots of thin ones. Between the different types of paint, use really soft sandpaper (350ish) and smooth it out.
Hope it goes well!

I'm thinking of buying the Paint your guitar like a pro ebooks, do u know anything about them, is it worth it.

not really. Just be patient and sand 'till you can see your face in that thing and you won't end up like me!

Besides I'm sure the tutorial on here is better then any book anyways.

Hey, what's the best kind of laquer?


I'd also like to know this. Is there a trick to knowing what kind of lacquer to use with which kind of paints?

if you go to wherever you get your paint from it will tell you on the shelf or on the can of paint itself what kind of laquer you need.

This might be the dumbest question ever asked on UG, but you spray the paint on, right?
