You'll most likly want to paint your guitar with the FL off, along with every other piece of hardware, unless your just doing touch up to fix a scratch or something. But if your actually painting the guitar, you'll want it taken apart and the body gutted before doing so..


I loved the gallery man, very talented.. Im currently building my own custom guitar but im staining it not painting it, but ill want to add custom details to the headstock and air brushing might be a good way to go, ill look you up if i have questions.

yea def take the trem/neck off and also, I would mask off the edges of the neck where they meet the body to avoid any problems when re assembling it. Youll have a hard time painting it with it still on, while tryng to avoid over spray and other problems. just strip it, paint it, re assemble it.

any other questions?

well first lat down the metallic base and paint the whole thing.

then mask off the entire guitar leaving only the "X" visible, with masking tape or frisket paper, whatever, get it too look like what you want on ther.

then paint the X black (I would use a candy black so the metallic will show through and pop more than plain black).

unmask it, clear it and yer done.


Or just have me do it and dont have to worry about anything lol.

No, you could mask around it.

Do not paint the frets, it totally distorts the sound.

what do u use for a gun?
i have been using an iwata CM-B, a badger 360 universal, and an iwata W-200 with a binks pot

and for the last little while i have been experimenting with pinstripe brushes...and even tried the pinstripe "roller" do u have any suggestions for a decent lacquer friendly brush... i catn find anything i like other than a good old fashioned ruling pen and a french curve.
#27
I never would recomend those rollers, they suck.

I use a dagger and remove a lot of the hairs. Good to go. You should be able to find one at any decent paint store.

I use an iwata HPC, its great. Perfect lines with the crown cap off.

ALso, remember to thin the hell out of airbrush piants, I always do. Control yer airpressure too.
