I am going to customize one of my guitars and I want to put that EVH striped design on it, but I am not sure as to how to go about doing that.

What Kind of Paint do I use so I do not damage the guitar?


Thanks in advance

try to avoid enamel, acrylic is alright, but dupli-color(car paint) works best imo. But acrylic will work fine as well. For the stripes you use tape.

You'll need to sand it down to the original finish, then primer it a few times, let it set for a few hours(days even), the you paint the design on it, let it set for a few weeks and then you clear coat it.

To paint the acual design, follow these steps-
1. paint it black
2. tape off black bits
3. paint it white
4. tape off white/black bits
5. paint red
6. pull all tape off

Here is a good site to help-

D'oh! I have it bookmarked since I've posted that link so many times on the GB&C forum. I think I posted it on your thread when you first asked.

That's because I didn't ask how to do it, I asked if I sould do it.

Besides, only an idiot wouldn't be able to figure it out themselves


EDIT- Who's birthday is it today(mine)?
