You can paint with nail varnish onto guitars pretty well... It's just embarassing buying nail varnish if you're a guy...

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Nah, just say you're into metalcore, or emocore, or some sort of core...

ANyway, any paint that's ok for use on woods is all cool. The most important thing is the finish/varnish that goes on after the paint.

Duplicolour car paint works



yeah that's what most ppl use, and like someone said, the finish is more important than the paint, you could use fabric and it would work with the right finish: use this tut to finish your guitar and you can use anything you want to paint it

so here's the tut:
1) spray with four+ coats of laquer, then
